The Disk Drive for Notetaker is a disk accessory designed to enable users of Freedom Scientific braille and electronic notetakers (Braille 'N Speak, Type 'N Speak, Braille Lite, or Type Lite; see separate entries) to save any file from a notetaker to a standard diskette. The diskettes are formatted in standard PC-compatible format and are readable by any IBM or compatible computer. The diskettes can be used for data storage or sharing or to serve as a backup of file memory for the notetaker. This drive also enables data files to be imported to the notetaker, enabling any text file stored on a standard diskette to be heard in synthetic speech. The unit uses standard 3.5-inch diskettes and enables the notetaker to create a list of files on each disk. Any PC telecommunications program can be used to transfer files to the drive and the drive can be used with any serial device. POWER: Uses a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery (included) providing 15 hours of use between charges. An alternating current (AC) adapter/charger (included) enables operation using standard household current. OPTIONS: Carrying case, a variety of cables, and a service contract. DIMENSIONS: 8.25 x 4.25 x 1.25 inches. WARRANTY: One-year warranty from date of receipt.
