You can probably Google this to find out more.  Sin ce the Book Sense is a 
competitive product, we cannot discuss this on this list.  Thank you.

Sorry I am a bit off topic.  Just curious, on which web site can a person 
read all about and buy the Booksense?  Is the booksense quite user friendly 
for totally blind people?  Thanks for any help on  this.

All the best,
