We are pleased to announce that Michelle Perkins and Gloria Stuart, Senior Assistive Technology Specialists & Trainers at New England Low Vision and Blindness have been recognized by Humanware as BrailleNote Touch Experts.
The intense certification and testing process consisted of 2 full days of training, review, and studying of several training videos, in-depth review of all the product manuals as well as the review and studying of other training resources.
Michelle and Gloria have been working with the BrailleNote Family for almost 19 years but even that required considerable training. “I will say the test was harder then we expected!”, said Perkins.
