Humanware Releases Updates to Victor Reader Stream Second Gen and Brailliant BI


by Scott Davert

Humanware has released 2 new updates to its products. For Stream users, version 4.7, which adds support for the saving of NFB Newsline content and also adds the ability to subscribe to specific publications right from the device. Previous to now, it was not possible to subscribe to newspapers on the Stream directly, the user had to log in to NFB Newsline to manage what they would get on the Stream. But if you aren't in a place that supports Newsline, there is still a reason to upgrade. Version 4.7 allows you to synchronize the time you have set to an online server. This involves setting your Stream to the correct time in your time zone and then enabling this feature. The update is free, and you can update your Stream Second Generation by following the instructions in the source link.

Braillo Norway Announces Comparatively Affordable $23,000 300CPS Braille Embosser


by J.J. Meddaugh

There are consumer braille embossers that cost under $5,000 and commercial models which can run you upwards of six figures, but not a lot of options in-between. Braillo Norway, a company known for its commercial-grade embossers, has announced an updated version of the Braillo 300 at a reduced price of $23,000. Announced at the World Blind Union and ICEVI General Assembly in Orlando, the embosser prints at 300 characters per second and comes with a free copy of the Duxbury braille translation software. That price may look scary, but to a braille production house, it could be a huge break. An earlier model of the Brailo 300 was being demonstrated at CSUN in 2013 at a price of $57,000. Preorders are being taken now, with shipping expected to begin in October. Check out the Braillo web page on the new embosser for more information.

Braille Comes to the Echo in a Challenging way


by Scott Davert

Michael Doise, who has developed several apps for iOS including PocketBraille Reference, Visual Brailler, VO Starter, and blind Bargains, has now brought his skills to the Alexa platform. The Braille Challenge is an Alexa skill that asks the user questions to test their knowledge of braille. Most questions deal with the dot formations found in uncontracted braille, though there are also a few questions about braille itself. The skill, like all others on the Echo platform is free to play and can be activated by telling Alexa to enable The Braille Challenge. While a simple utility, it can be a great reference for those trying to learn braille who just want a bit of practice and who may learn better with this approach.

We've featured the GoVision in our CSUN coverage, however, Joe hasn't gotten up close and personal with the unit for our BBQ fans until now. Paul shows Joe how the versatile arm of the device can allow a user to get up close and personal with their text no matter how close or far away it might be from the camera. Hear how GoVision differs from eBot and why you should consider this transportable unit if you find that you need a more deskbound Video magnifier solution. Need to know more?

Nearly New! Barely Used, B2G for $2000 or best offer

For sale is one of the first B2G's sold by NBP. I purchased it last May, but have never used it seriously. Comes with original carrying case and accompanying paperwork. Regretfully, I have misplaced cables and adapter, but will be glad to send them along when I find them. I am finding I don't have the time necessary to learn how to use this wonderful machine to its fullest potential, and would rather someone purchase it who will truly appreciate all it has to offer. On account of missing accessories, I am taking off the amount over $2000 from its original price. May consider swapping unit for a gently used Hims Braille Sense U2, U2 Mini, or USB-compatible Braille Embosser. May also consider selling at a slightly lower price if buyer has unlocked i'phone 6.

Rare Louis Braille Commemorative Italian 2 Euros 200th Birthday Anniversary Coin

I have a small number of Italian 2 Euros commemorative coins that were only available in Italy and made to commemorate the 200th birthday Anniversary of Louis Braille. These are non circulated coins in new mint condition. These were made as part of the Italian money and were actually circulated to be used as 2 Euros. Check out the details below. Rare Italian Louis Braille 2 Euros coin commemorating the 200th Birthday Anniversary of Louis Braille from 1809 to 2009 Italian - 2 Euros commemorative coin 1809 to 2009 commemorating the 200th Anniversary - Birth of Louis Braille. The coin depicts a hand reading an open book by touch. The index finger points at a vertical inscription ‘LOUIS BRAILLE 1809-2009’ and two birds in flight above the hand symbolizing freedom of knowledge. The monogram of the Italian Republic, ‘RI’, is at the top right, while the mint mark ‘R’ is at the bottom right. Braille’s name is written under the book in the alphabet that he invented. At the very bottom are the initials ‘MCC’ of the artist Maria Carmela Colaneri. The 12 stars of the European Union are shown on the outer ring.

$150 Lightweight Keyboard and Audio Learning Resources

Here is a very lightly played, Yamaha Piaggero NP31 keyboard. It weighs about 12 pounds and has 76 weighted keys. It is easily accessible to someone who is totally blind or has partial vision. The keyboard has several instrument sounds, including 2 acoustic pianos, electric piano, organ, harpsichord, and vibraphone. There are fewer sounds than many models, but these are realistic and easily accessible with the press of a button. Other features include song demos, metronome, recording and playback of what is played on the keyboard, reverb effects, and layering instrument sounds for simultaneous or split keyboard. MIDI in/out, a 1/4-inch headphone jack, foot switch jack and piano-style sustain pedal, and AC adapter are included. Also runs on 6 AA batteries (not included). Purchase does not include headphones, but does include a 1/4-inch instrument cable. Plug this into the 1/4-inch output on the keyboard and into the corresponding 1/4-inch input on a PA system, amplifier, or recording device for live performance or recording. I can email you the Yamaha NP31 manual in text format, or you can download it from Yamaha in PDF. In addition, if you are a NLS patron, you can download the beginning to advanced piano courses specially written and recorded for the visually impaired. Otherwise these must be purchased separately from the publisher. This does not include a stand. You can put the keyboard on a table or purchase an X style folding keyboard stand. In a pinch it can be held on your lap or laid across a bed or bench, but this can be awkward. It's best to have a stand. Asking $150 including shipping within the continental United States. PayPal preferred. As a reminder, this is for the keyboard, AC adapter, instrument cable, foot pedal, and piano course recommendations. Will ship via USPS Priority Mail. Please feel free to email with any questions or for sound samples.

Lots of braille books free to a good home

I have a large collection of braille books which have rarely or never been touched, and which, thanks to advances in technology I no longer need. My family and I just want them out of the way, so all books are free. I don't have a full listing of titles as of this posting, but I have the entire Harry Potter series, the first three books in the Inharitance cycle, several Nightmare Room/Goosebumps Series 2000 books, most of the Alex Wrighter series, Twilight, A wrinkle in Time, The Daring Book for Girls, and quite a few more. If you're interested, send an email to rogersjn1@goldmail.etsu.edu. I should have a full list of the books in the next week or so.

ANGELA'S AWESOME HOME MADE BEEF JERKY!

Its back, Angela’s Awesome Home Made Beef Jerky. At present I have the following flavors: Teriyaki: sweet and mild. For those who get the spice in their lives not from food. Dad’s Bragging Rights: Very flavorful with a peppery kick. If you like traditional jerky, this will more than meet your expectations. Ragin Cajun: Very hot with robust flavor. If you’re one of those people who takes the Blazing Wings challenge at Buffalo Wild Wings, this one’s for you. Tiffany’s Best: Gluten free, sugar free, but still irresistible. To quote one customer: “Amazingly tender and not what you’d expect from gluten free.” The price is $10 for a 6OZ bag, plus a $5 flat shipping charge. To order please contact: Angela Fowler Cell: (530) 902-0987 Email: fowlers@syix.com
