Hims came into this year's CSUN conference with a bang, announcing the Blaze EZ, the successor to the BookSense digital media player. The Blaze EZ includes wireless capabilities and optical character recognition for reading printed documents. We spoke with Dave Wilkinson, Business Development Manager for Hims, who gave us a first look and live demo of the device. Blind Bargains audio coverage of CSUN 2014 is generously sponsored by the American Foundation for the Blind.

I pre-ordered this item on June 15th and finally received it today: September 5th. I then discovered that this player is not yet even authorized to play NLS content. Upon calling tech support at HIMS I was told that they have been telling people IF THEY ASK US. I am seriously considering returning this item. I have a Braille Edge from HIMS that I like very much but I feel that HIMS has either deliberately or inadvertently failed to openly inform buyers about the status of this item for both purchase and use with NLS.
