Visually impaired people are often used to have several devices at home or office: smartphones, computers, Braille display, USB rechargeable devices, and so on. This means that the house and office, is full of electric or USB cables for charging batteries, with the mess they can cause! Many cables in the same place, with even the risk of falling on them! A small Italian company, called Feligan, has solved the problem: a unique solution for all devices! Power Brick. This accessory can charge…

We have all heard about extended battery cases for IOS devices. I first heard about this one last year when I was beta testing IOS5 and was having battery life problems. I had heard about this case's little brother, the Mophi Juice Pack Air, but was not interested due to its smaller capacity and the fact that it did not fully charge your phone. This one's price is slightly higher at $99 when I bought it. However, I could not be happier. This case has extended the battery life of my phone by as…

This review is about the third generation model of the Apple Wireless Keyboard. The keyboard itself is very thin. It needs two AA batteries which you slot into it from the left side on the back of the keyboard. On the opposite (right) side is a round button. The keyboard width nicely resembles approximately a 40 cell braille display, which makes it a perfect match for use with a Handy Tech Braille Star 40 for instance. The keys feel very nice during typing, and are quite large. In fact, I am…

The Handy Tech Braille Star 40 is a portable, rechargeable 40 cell braille display with serial, USB and Bluetooth connectivity.  Its physical dimensions are 331 x 227 x 24 mm (width x depth x height).  The tactile surface of the Braille elements are concavely shaped.  Each cell has exactly one cursor routing key located above.  Below the cells you find 8 braille dot keys separated by two space keys.  To the left and right of the reading area are the so-called tripple action keys which you…

As advertised on the web, the Apple TV comes with VoiceOver.

Once its finished it will announce to you that you are supposed to press the lower right button three…

I just got a USB Wall charger for my iPod Touch and I must say that I love this charger! It will charge all of your iOS devices and it will also charge your iPod nano! I love this charger because I don't have to worry about burning out the battery on my iPod touch and my iPod Nano! You can call apple and order it at 1-800-692-7753 or click the link below for more details!

So I purchased this keyboard last year for my iPod Touch because I did not want to mess with typing on the touch screen. I find that I use this device on all of my iOS devices including my iPhone, iPad, my Mac Mini and of course my iPod Touch. The keyboard is relatively comfortable to use whether on a tabletop or on your lap and it is not too small to type on and not big and bulky either. I paid $69 for it but they have come out with a newer one so I would suggest looking in to that one. This…

I've only tested the Focus 40 Blue braille display from Freedom Scientific on an iPhone 4. Almost all on-screen gestures have key combinations to execute the same commands on the braille display. Though the display's keys are rather noisy, the display is very responsive. I find that I have to retype braille more often than I have had to with other displays. However, the display is light and compact. The display is comfortable to use, and the braille is crisp. I would advise purchasing an…

I thought that I would help to kick things off in this new area of the site by giving a quick review of the Seidio Rugged case for the iPhone 4

When the iPhone 4 was first released there weren't too many cases available, and fewer still that matched my 'must have' feature of having some form of belt clip. Things were further complicated because there are times when I want to just slip the phone into a pocket. It looked like I would end up with 2 cases, one slim enough to fit in a…

Ok, the following is a review of the Plantronics Voyager Pro HD which is the latest version of the Voyager pro series.

First, the headset feels and looks almost exactly like the previous versions of the Voyager pro. The headset has the large behind the ear portion with the buttons and battery housed in this section.  A loop covers the ear with a boom microphone that swings down and an insert with difference sized inserts for the ear.  Buttons are in the same position with the…
