At this point there is no technology support for braille output in any of
the commercial eReaders that I am aware of. The approach that seems to be
currently explored is self voicing user interfaces which as far as I am
aware do not support any binary outputs. Since these devices do have USB
ports it probably could be done but only with the newest technology.

Does anyone know if Amazon and Apple are going to build in braille
connectivity to the Kindle and the iPad, or is it just audio output? What
about Blio? Has anyone on this group had a chance to trial Blio or the k-nfb
ereader? Guy
