#ATIA19: Humanware Refreshes the BrailleNote Touch with Faster Hardware, Android 8.1
Less than three years after its original release, the BrailleNote Touch is getting a makeover. $$$ Humanware announced 18 and 32-cell editions of the BrailleNote Touch Plus at the Assistive Technology Industry Association conference this past week in Orlando. They feature the Snapdragon 820 (APQ8096) paired with a Quad-core Kryo 2.2 GHz 64-bit CPU. Memory is doubled from 2GB to 4GB, while internal storage also doubles to 64GB. The storage is now built-in to the unit as opposed to being on a removable memory card. The removable cards allowed users to move to a new unit if theirs was damaged by inserting the card, but Humanware says that a backup utility will be available. Other modern conveniences include Wi-Fi 802.11AC with both 2.4 and 5GHz support, Bluetooth 4.2, and USBC for charging. The size, weight, and battery appear to be largely unchanged. On the software side, the Touch Plus will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, and be more likely to get updates to Android in the future because of the use of more mainstream parts. Android 8.1 also brings with it support for the Google Assistant, the Chrome web browser, and enhanced printing capabilities. The units can be ordered now, with the 32-bit version available for $5,695 and the 18-cell going for $4,195. These are both a slight $200 bump over the original touch. Current Touch users can transplant their braille cells to a new model for $1,295. Users who recently purchased a BrailleNote Touch may be eligible to receive further discounts or a free upgrade. We'll have more about the new BrailleNote Touch Plus in a forthcoming ATIA 2019 podcast interview. What do you think of this new notetaking option? Let us know in the comments.

2018 Summer Convention Special #Sponsored: A deeper dive Into Android Accessibility Suite , BrailleBack and More
September 2018 will see the 8th year anniversary of Joe and J.J. talking about Android accessibility features on a number of podcasting platforms. After several versions of Android, and around half a dozen phones between them, the duo can say that the options for Android users continue to impress upon each successive release. Victor Tsaran, Technical Program Manager for Android Accessibility, has been an extremely busy fellow with preparations for the impending launch of Android P later this year. While we sadly didn't learn what the letter P will stand for as the next delicious flavor of Android, J.J. did glean much in the way of what changes are on the horizon for accessibility in the upcoming release of the operating system. In this interview the pair discuss the recent change to combine several access services, including TalkBack, into the new Android Accessibility Suite. The conversation then moves to the new features and Accessibility Services in Android P including one of interest to people with hearing loss. Additionally, Braille input fans will be interested in the talk about an upcoming BrailleBack release. And you won't want to miss the tips for those considering the purchase of an Android device or how OCR plays into the new Select to Speak feature for Low Vision users. Check out the [Google Accessibility blog]( to learn more about what changes are happening at Google.
