LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ - HumanWare has launched the BrailleNote Apex, the thinnest and lightest notetaker especially for professionals and students who are blind.

Powerful and sleek at just 2 cm (0.78") thick and weighing only 812 grams (1.8 lbs), the BrailleNote Apex is designed for portability and functionality. Intelligent ergonomics have always been the benchmark of HumanWare products, and the BrailleNote Apex performs with comfort and agility. A comfortable full-size Braille keyboard makes notetaking quick and easy, while HumanWare's signature thumb keys make extensive reading effortless.

"As a proud supporter of Braille literacy, HumanWare is committed to developing products that help blind people to fully participate in the quickly evolving, digital world around them. Because we believe that communication is the key to success, we strive to put every opportunity in the hands of our customers with Braille products that meet their needs every day. The BrailleNote Apex puts the power of digital communication at everyone's fingertips," says Gilles Pepin, CEO of HumanWare.

Added horsepower and multiple storage options define the BrailleNote Apex's productivity with its 8 GB of internal memory and support for high capacity SDHC cards, along with 4 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet and Bluetooth.

The advanced technology is driven by the new Windows CE 6.0 operating system which enables the expansion of KeySoft, a comprehensive, user-friendly suite of productivity applications with feature-rich content that is 100% accessible. This powerful software combination will facilitate future enhancements and ongoing improvements in response to user requests.

Almost ten years after the introduction of the BrailleNote, the revolutionary BrailleNote Apex is the ninth notetaking device in a line of products that has been helping people who are blind to be a vital part of the global information age since 2000.
