Hi Zachary

I don't know that the Perkins Braille display is available here in the UK.
If it is, then who is the dealer does anyone know?  And what is the RB18?

Kind Regards,

Jackie Brown

Hello Mel,
There are many very small braille displays.  It depends on how many cells
you want.  If you want 18, the RB18 would be a good option, if you want
less, Smart Beetle, Perkins Mini, and Braille Pen and EasyLink are the
braille displays for you.

Hi All,



I sing in a choir and have to read a substantial amount of Braille as our
repertoire is very large.  At present I lug huge folders around with me but
would like to have a more portable solution.  I'm thinking of storing my
files on an iOS device and using a portable display.



Is anyone using a similar solution and do you have any recommendations for a
display or even a storage solution? I'm thinking Access Note might be all I
need for storage as I can use text files to keep the size of them down.

I look forward to hearing your suggestions.



Mel
