Communication is not any less important when a person is blind or deaf and handicapped in one means of receiving and transmitting information accessible to others. Physical handicaps should not prevent one from living a normal and productive life. HumanWare, the leader in technological devices for the visually impaired, has added another feather to its cap. It has introduced the world’s thinnest and lightest notetaker for the blind, the BrailleNote Apex.


Measuring 2 cm (0.78″) thick and weighing only 812 grams (1.8 lbs), the tiny but mighty device is suitable for students and professionals. BrailleNote Apex features an ergonomically-friendly full-size keyboard which makes note-taking quick and easy. Besides its powerful performance and 8GB of internal memory, BrailleNote has built-in WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, SD card slot, and 4 high-speed USB ports. Portable and user-friendly, the sleek device runs on Windows CE6 and has vast potential for upgrades and enhancements. BrailleNote Apex is believed to make it easier for the visually impaired to integrate themselves and participate more fully in a fast evolving knowledge-driven society.
