        Subject: CSUN 2010 - GW Micro Announcements and News


        It's another exciting year for GW Micro at CSUN 2010.  We have
many exciting things to unveil to you beginning with the brand new
BookSense DS. 


        BookSense DS 


        The BookSense DS is the first and only book player to have a
display, and not just any type of display, an OLED display.  Cutting
edge technology meets assistive technology with the BookSense DS.  While
looking like a standard MP3 player, it is capable of everything you have
come to know and love from the BookSense, including the ability to play
NLS, RFB&D, MP3, music from iTunes (MP4), Word 2003 and 2007 document,
DAISY books, and more.  The BookSense DS also boasts 4 GB of built-in
memory, along with an SD card slot that accepts high-capacity memory
cards.  The built-in accessible FM radio even receives reception from
radio stations without the need for headphones.  On the front of the
unit, the keys have spaces between them making finding each key simple
for customers who may lack feeling in their fingers. 


        The OLED display is fantastic for the classroom or students who
have learning difficulties.  Teachers can use the display to see what
the students are doing, or to see what the BookSense is saying.
Students with learning difficulties will be able to follow along on the
screen when reading an accessible DAISY textbook or a document to help
reinforce the material.  Students will be able to see and hear the
textbooks, and they can even adjust the rate of how fast they read to
make reading fun and easy. 


        Voice Sense QWERTY 


        At long last, this is the Voice Sense that so many of our
customers have been asking for.  The Voice Sense QWERTY combines the
latest technology of the Braille Sense Plus with the small footprint of
the Voice Sense.  Weighing in at less than one pound, the Voice Sense
QWERTY is the only notetaker to offer a built-in GPS receiver and a
digital compass to make it simple to navigate around your home or to
find your way to the train station, restaurant, grocery store, or
practically any other location.  


        Teachers and students will enjoy the new support for accessible
DAISY textbooks using the NIMAS format.  You can also read Microsoft
Word 2003 and 2007 documents, along with numerous other formats.
Carrying on the tradition of the other Sense notetakers, the Voice Sense
QWERTY has a powerful line-up of applications to help make you
productive in your educational and work environment, or in your personal
life.  Browse the web with built-in Wi-Fi or listen to the Voice Sense
QWERTY with a Bluetooth headset.  Whether you are a working
professional, a student, retired, or if you have low vision, the Voice
Sense QWERTY is the small, easy solution to keep you in touch with your
friends and family, keep you organized, or to use as entertainment. 


        Desktop SenseView 

        The Desktop SenseView continues its breakthrough technology with
its included DVI port, making it simple to connect any flat-screen
television or new computer.  The new enhanced version offers a sleek
design, and the improved image quality makes it one of the best desktop
CCTVs in its class.  It's stylish, simplistic design makes using the
Desktop SenseView a breeze.  Regain your independence, and be able to
read books, medicine bottle, newspapers, magazines, and even look at
photos of your friends and family.  Stay up-to-date with your bills by
using the Desktop SenseView to read your mail and bank statements.  With
the ease of use of the Desktop SenseView, simply take it out of the box,
connect the cables, and begin to enjoy viewing life all over again! 


        Free Upgrade for all Desktop SenseView Customers 

        As continued appreciation to all of our current Desktop
SenseView customers, all customers who currently own a Desktop SenseView
in the U.S. will be receiving a brand new replacement Desktop SenseView!

the existing Desktop SenseView units.  All current Desktop SenseView
