The Orbit Reader family has grown, and if you’re confused by who’s who, then this audio documentation from Mystic Access is here to help. Whether you’re completely new to the Orbit braille displays and are curious what they’re all about, or are considering an upgrade of your current model, this product has information to support you.

We’ll walk you through the broad differences between the three models of Orbit reading devices. We’ll also talk SD cards, charging, and basic functions needed to operate the Orbit Reader. Then, we’ll take a deeper look under the hood — at the menus, where you can configure Orbit Reader to behave just as you would like. We’ll also discuss connecting the Orbit Reader to various devices, and updating the software. The audio includes lots of step-by-step instructions, and helpful questions asked by participants when this material was taught as a live event.

This product would benefit those who have an Orbit Reader, as well as those who are considering purchasing new units or upgrading their existing Orbit Readers.
