These include a 32 GB internal flashdisk, software to handle such things as spreadsheets, an FM radio, daisy player, and many more. It's very lightweight to carry around both...

The RiVO is a small device, about as wide and deep as a credit card and roughly 1/3 inches thick.

So I picked up my iPad air a few days ago, and the first thing I noticed was how small the box was. I had the chance to play with an iPad 2 the day before, and the box with everything inside felt like it weighed about the same. So what did I find when I opened the box? Simple packaging thank goodness. I felt like a kid with a new toy and I...

Hello Applevis community! It’s my first review, so I apologize if there are any formatting issues or other inconsistencies. I’ve been browsing the Applevis website but didn’t find much information related to these Braille displays here or on the web, so maybe my experience will be somehow helpful for those who are picking a Braille display for...

You can feel the buttons well. The bad things are that the keyboard will double type meaning you have multiple letters. You have to type slowish to make sure...

Introduction For the power user, which I consider myself to be, one of the challenges is keeping all of your devices charged and ready to use. As someone who owns an iPod, iPhone, Macbook Air, and who requires braille support, I demand a lot of power each day.
