#NFB18: Details On The Humanware Braille Note Touch July Update

We last caught up with Humanware's Andrew Flatres, Product Manager of Braille Products, at CSUN 18 To speak about the Brailliant 14
launch window. While we didn t capture any audio from Humanware from this year s summer convention coverage, Andrew did send along this summary of what is coming in the Keysoft July update for Braille Note Touch that was outlined in St. Louis and Orlando.

The following enhancements have been introduced:

Email suggestions

After entering a string of text into the editable TO, CC and BCC fields, pressing Backspace, space with E will open the recipient suggestion drop-down box.

Share function in KeyWord

You can now share your documents even easier. Instead of going through the file manager while in your document, open the context menu by pressing Space with M or pressing the context button. Under the File category, a new Share option is available. Please note that if the current document has not been saved, you will be prompted to save it before selecting a program to share your document.
Find and Replace

Using the command Backspace with F you can perform a find a replace. On pressing the command, you will be prompted with Find what? . Type the word you wish to find and press Enter. You will then receive a prompt Replace with: Type the word you want to use and press enter.
Insert Page break

Using the command Backspace with P will now create a page break.


RTFC German Braille code added     The best forward and back translation on the market.
Updates to Liblouis v3.4
Fixed the Norwegian Duxbury G1 where there was an issue with the pronunciation of characters

The update is free and you can always learn more by visiting Humanware s support page for the Braille Note Touch
We hope to have Andrew on a future episode of the BBQ to discuss more about these Keysoft changes and talk about some of the future updates for the Victor Reader Trek in the next month or so.
