Re: any word on when this comes out?

The FSCast notification setting is still there; it may have gotten disabled by default if, for instance, you are running a non-English version of JAWS. To Turn it on, open Settings Center (by pressing JAWSKey+6 on the numbers row, for instance), press CTRL+SHIFT+D to open the Default file, and then search the Settings Center for FSCast. It is a check box which should be found if you do that search.


Regarding ElBraille, there will be an interview on it on a future Blind Bargains podcast—I believe it will actually be on next week’s podcast (


Ms. Adi Kushnir posted a message in January on this list as well (pasted below); I would suggest perhaps writing to her directly to ask if you would like the Quick Start Guide referenced below, as the attachment could not come through on the list…


Pasted message below my signature…Hope it helps!

Hi list members haven’t been viewing the digests in a while so hope I’m not asking a question that has already been answered.  Last year when jaws was giving you the one time prompt to listen to the new FScast, they had an item on a new notetaker called the elbraille.  this was supposed to be a windows 10 based jaws based notetaker that also would have the focus 14 braille display in it.  supposedly this gadget is smaller than the pac mate was and even had a self voicing recovery menue in it.  does anyone on list know when it is coming out?  also on a related note why was the one time prompt to listen to that monthly podcast discontinued.  did jaws users not like that feature?  I thought it was kind’a handy.
