Wait, it is not available on the commercial market yet. There was a demo model at one of the big tech shows recently. The Orbit braille display will be available this Spring and it is priced around $500 and will work on tablets just like the much more expensive models we can choose from now.

These options may not have all of the bells and whistles, but are something I can actually afford.

What about a Windows 10 computer? There's actually a braille Windows 10 computer that runs Jaws, it's not out yet, but I'm guessing, it's only $3,000, which isn't too bad, better than the Touch. The specs are much better too.

I feel that the braille note touch is way overprised for what it truly does.

I prefer to use a real tablet, either android or iPad, in this case an iPad,
and get one of those great keyboard cases like the clamcase pro cases, and
if you need braille get a braille display like the baum vario ultra 20, etc

The 5500$$$ price tag on the note takers from humanware and hims, and anyone
else is way Too much money these days.

All of the current braille note takers are really expensive. I am excited
about some of the new products being revealed with super affordable price
tags on braille displays. Even a $500 tablet that has its own Braille

Do you use Braille at all? If so, you should look into a BrailleNote
Touch, yes, I know it's expensive, but it has the power to do all of that
plus much more.

Hello, everyone.

I am a little green in this area. I was wondering what everyone thinks
about purchasing refurbished tablets from somewhere like, say Amazon. I
need a tablet for school just to take notes. Then, when I get home, I copy
my note files over to my laptop and do the real work there. Thanks for your
