Re: Orbit Questions


This is drew. I’ll braille displays make some noise.

I am curious about these new braille displays that generate rail on multiple lines. I have read that they are even working on braille displays that generate the equivalent of 1full page of braille. Some of these displays our tablet computers that have a refresher both braille display instead of a screen. Very interesting!

Hi all,

The only way to determine if the Orbit is too noisy is to try it. It would depend on the microphone, and the studio acoustics. I'd try it before making a blanket statement. Remember that a demo of how loud the Orbit is would be done with the mike pointing at it. I have a headset which tends to block out a lot of ambiant noise. I'm sure that something similar may be available for radio equipment. I wouldn't throw out the baby with the bathwater.

It may be that the Orbit will not work well with radio equipment, but to make assumptions is not a good idea. Me, I'd want to try it first; have some measurable data to go on.

Just my $.02 for a Monday morning.
