The RBD is the RefreshaBraille, it's made by APH.  But I'm not 
sure if that's in the UK either.

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
