In terms of a diary why not simply use Outlook if you are using Office?
In all version of office Outlook I know you simply press control  2 to  enter an accessible calendar/diary.
Press control  1 to return to email.

Hi Eleanor.
If you are happy with a qwerty keyboard then the Ultrabook could be the way to go.  Netbook computers don't really exist anymore but as they are main stream devices they can certainly be cheap.  For what you want, the machine does not need to be particularly powerful so you should have no difficulty at all getting something costing less than £350.

My only hesitation here involves the way in which you use the diary.  there are not many really affordable accessible diary programs that are also calendar and reminder programs out there.  if anyone knows of one, available with windows 8 at a reasonable price then let us know.

Once you get into Braille note takers, even those without a Braille display, they start to get somewhat more expensive.

Regards

Graham

Dear all,
I have the original VoiceSense.  It has just stopped working and the time may have come to look for a replacement.  I was only using the diary, the address book and occasionally the word processor.  I don’t want to spend thousands of pounds on something with a lot of functionality which I don’t need.  Perhaps I can learn to use the calendar and address book in Windows Live Mail.  Perhaps I can learn to use a smart phone.  Perhaps there is a simpler solution out there.  What do you recommend?

Regards,
Eleanor
