HIMS RELEASES NEW BRAILLESENSE POLARIS FIRMWARE



HIMS IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE OUR THIRD UPGRADE FOR THE BRAILLESENSE POLARIS, THE FIRST AND ONLY GOOGLE CERTIFIED BRAILLE TABLET WITHOUT A SCREEN. THIS UPGRADE FEATURES MANY FIXES AND ENHANCEMENTS IN RESPONSE TO YOUR FEEDBACK AND SUGGESTIONS INCLUDING MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS TO THE WORD PROCESSOR, E-MAIL, IMPROVED ACCESS TO WEB PORTALS LIKE AIRPORTS AND HOTELS, BETTER CONSISTENCY AND CONNECTION BETWEEN THE BRAILLESENSE AND ANDROID SIDE, AND MORE.



FOR THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THE TRANSITION TO UEB, THERE IS NO NEED TO EVER USE COMPUTER BRAILLE ON BRAILLESENSE POLARIS. WHETHER YOU’RE WRITING AN ADDRESS IN THE WEB BROWSER, ENTERING AN EMAIL ADDRESS, WRITING IN GOOGLE DOCS … COMPUTER BRAILLE IS GONE. FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT USING UEB YET, POLARIS CONTINUES TO SUPPORT OLDER BRAILLE CODES.



BRAILLESENSE POLARIS SUPPORTS CREATING AND EDITING OF NEMETH AND UEB MATH RIGHT IN THE WORD PROCESSOR AND INSTANTLY DISPLAYS THE RESULTS CORRECTLY FOR SIGHTED TEACHERS. COMING SOON! HIMS WILL BE RELEASING ANOTHER POLARIS UPDATE WHICH WILL HAVE A TREASURE TROVE OF FEATURES INCLUDING SUPPORT FOR CREATING AND EDITING GRAPHS.
