[BCAB] Notetaker Opinions

Hi,

Yes, there's something about Apple with Braille input that's never quite been there for speed.  The Smart Beetle from Hims tries to
get around this with a keyboard emulation mode where the display pretends to be a standard Bluetooth keyboard; unfortunately I've
never had the chance to try this out myself.

Sean.

Hi Jacaie, think it's Apple, though I must admit, I could never get the damn apex to connect, LOL, humanware thinks we're robots,
and can type in 4 digits on 2 devices, within like 3 seconds. I braille on my phone's screen, and that is nice enough for me.
