A few years ago, we wrote about the Orbit Reader 20, which is a refreshable Braille display that makes books readily available (like a Kindle.) Orbit Research, the company behind the device, now offers the Orbit Reader 20 Plus.
According to LS&S Products, the newer model consists of the same features as the standard model, PLUS some additional enhancements. The device is a unique 3-in-1 electronic Braille device that serves as a self-contained notetaker, Braille display, and book reader.
Unlike the original model, the Plus features a calendar, clock/alarm, and a calculator app built into the display. It also consists of a “new motherboard, faster processing, and more memory, in addition to on-board Braille translation to translate any text file.”
