Hi everyone, I am new to this site and have a question for those of you who use an iphone with a braille display. My current notetaker, a braillenote, is old and I need to be buying a new notetaker soon. I'm wondering whether I should buy a blindness specific device such as a braillenote or braillesense, or whether I should get an iphone with a refreshable braille display. I'd mostly be using it for work, to take notes while I counsel my patients. I need it to be reliable, fast, and easy to go back and review my notes. Do any of you use it for heavy notetaking especially with braille input? Do you find it annoying that you have to unlock your phone, turn on your braille display and then get to a notes application before you can actually start taking notes? It seems as though this would take a while and would take up valuable time. I know the benefits of using the iphone, but I am really not a fan of the touch screen, so I would be using it primarily with the braille display. What do you all think? Thanks so much.
