hi,
they can only
bring accessibility features. the fact is, the OS will have limitations, in terms of app updates, (third party apps) and there is nothing humanware will be able to do. if you're a power user, or a tinkerer, you may discover the work arounds.

Aren't they bringing parts of the newer Android OS into the touch though? Did they give a reason why they are sticking with Kitkat? I'm so glad I traded my touch in.

Debbie,
Someone at HumanWare told me that they'll be sticking with kitkat for the foreseeable future.

Debbie,

I don't think the Touch will be updatable to the next version of Android.

Can't speak for the HIMS offering.

Best,

Hi Sadam

The EllBraille also supports a 40 Braille Display although I'm not sure if that's released just yet.

As far as the Polaris and BrailleNote touch being outdated, Both Humanware and Hims have stated that their products are updatable.

To be honest, Both the Touch and HIMS polaris are out dated.

At least the ElBraille runs Windows 10 but 14 sells of braille is painful.

the new elements from newer android versions."

Preach it sir! I've written on that as extensively as has been
possible. I don't know why Humanware and its sisters simply won't
be honest in their dealings with their customer base. Imagine what
would have happened to Humanware if their so-called Android tablet had been in the mainstream!
Subway Sandwich was sued sometime back for claiming to offer a
foot-long sandwich when, upon real measurement by a buyer, it was
short by less than four inches or thereabout. Doctor Associates,
Inc., its parent company, was forced to settle the issue out of court.

The sad reality is that Humanware and its associates succeed in
confusing unsuspecting blind individuals who may wish to try out a
new OS! Oh well, I guess the savvy ones amongst us will continue to
brave the hurricanes and tornados and dip fingers in blue fin ranch dressing at all times!
