This hands-on workshop will begin with a review of the BrailleNote Touch hardware, apps, help structure and methods of navigation. Participants will explore the file management structure of the BrailleNote Touch and options students have to share and import documents. Next, creating, navigating and saving documents with KeyWord will be covered. The workshop will wrap up with time spent opening and navigating Braille and Daisy books with the Victor Reader and KeyBRF app.
