Hi, If I am in a meeting and need to take notes, I think using an earpiece
is far better than the intrusive sound of a screen reader. Some people like
myself are either not very good at braille or don't use it at all. Best
wishes to everyone for the new Year and thanks to everyone for the
invaluable information I get from this list. Susan Jones
