Device Loan Success Story
Ariana Richardson is a 21-year-old student who is blind and uses AT in the school setting. Her device had to be returned to the company for repair, so she contacted ABLE Tech to use the device loan program. ABLE Tech was able to loan a BrailleNote Touch 32 Plus to Ariana to use for school. The BrailleNote Touch 32 Plus is a powerful note-taker packed with educational tools that allows users like Ariana to be independent in the classroom.
The BrailleNote Touch 32 Plus has an interface that is easy to learn for both students and teachers, combining the benefits of KeySoft and braille literacy of a traditional note taker, with the efficiency and power of a modern smartphone or tablet. It is the first certified Braille Tablet providing Play Store access. Ariana was able to borrow the device from ABLE Tech and not skip a beat with her educational goals while her device was being repaired.
