That's what our clients say:
It is hard for me to leave my Pronto, because I use it in so many situations (as a Braille display, to read at home and in the train, to store my scores when I attempt my jazz sessions, to check my cooking or knitting templates, to write my SMS on my phone, and so on...), that I will miss it...
Pascale Isel - France
Only after using my Pronto! 18 V3 seriously did I realize what "working any time - anywhere" really meant. Being a freelance blindness trainer, Pronto! Informs me of my important appointments, I can check my emails anywhere, even outdoors when letting the guide dog out, I can take notes and read my notes back easily even when I'm travelling thanks to the well-designed carrying case. Not only does it make my work-life easier I use it a lot in my social life for chatting to friends via MSN Messenger. Listening to DAISY-books or songs on the MP3-player is easy to do on a bus or train and when I'm at home or at our summer cottage keeping the scores when playing games with my family. In the past I used to say that there were things that a blind person simply couldn?t do, now I've changed my mind and I'm just as productive and competitive as a sighted person.
