BRAILLENOTE APEX QT PHOTO
The BrailleNote Apex QT Educational Guide contains a variety of lessons and resources designed to assist a Teacher of the Visually Impaired when working with a student using a BrailleNote Apex QT.  The QT has a QWERTY style keyboard instead of a Braille style keyboard. Lessons are presented in a logical order and new skills are introduced when they are needed. The order that the lessons are given may vary on the individual students and their educational needs. Based on our 16 years for working with BrailleNote users and students with visual impairments these goals, lessons, and rubrics we feel will meet the needs of most K-12 students from beginner to advanced. The Apex is a braille notetaker that meets the educational needs of many students and adults.
