Hi all,

I decided to forward this to the list.  Thought some of you gadget freaks might 
be interested.

HI Scott,

For the BookSense, go to gwmicro.com select the support link and there you will 
find a link to join the list.

As far as locating the stops, I think the tactile markings are the best.  Also 
the RFID reader would also allow you to scan the RFID tag once you located the 
stop for additional information.  The down side is the units are currently 
priced at $449.00 but it also has a lot of other features.  The digital 
recorder is very good and has shortcut directories for to do, telephone numbers 
and Misc.  The volume is the loudest I have heard for a digital book reader and 
the size is the smallest.  As far as the Daisy reader, there needs to be some 
work done there, and the authorization methods haven't been worked out with 
Bookshare and NLS.  Another plus for the Milestone is, it is pretty simple to 
use.  It only has 6 buttons.

      I read your message on TABI and I wanted to tell you that this system 
sounds extraordinary. If there's some way to get it working around Tallahassee 
that would be amazing. It didn't sound to me as though the system would be a 
help in actually finding the bus stops like the device Chip brought to our 
attention would but a combination of both devices could solve most of the 
mobility and transportation problems for the visually impaired. Of course once 
the Pavip transport system includes GPS technology and you could mark on a map 
where bus stops are then I guess this is all the system you would need. Please 
keep us informed about new developments with this system and any other 
interesting adaptive technology you come in contact with. Thanks!
  Ps. Is there a mailing list for the Book Sense I can get on to in order to 
keep abreast of any new developments in the software for the machine so I know 
when to look for an update?
