A braille notetaker is a portable computer or personal data assistant that has a Braille display built onto it. These devices can be used in a stand-alone mode for taking notes, doing basic word-processing, scheduling appointments and performing other tasks. They can also be connected to a computer with screen reading software and act as a Braille terminal.
