Thanks Mary, 

It was a really fun and really fast interview. Judy is awesome! 

I was excited to find the safety stylus in the Braille Super Store too! Yes, buying a few to have around.

I took notes in high school, college, computer school and at work with a slate and stylus. I have one of the original tuckaway styluses that I got in the early 1960s when American Foundation for the Blind still had a catalog. They also sold a micro-slate that a 4 by 6 card fit into; it has 11 lines with about 25 cells, so the cells are smaller, but you can still read the results.

These days I use it for reading Braille books from BARD and BookShare. During my career I always used computer Braille, and never used speech; as a programmer and technical writer, everything had to line up properly, and, as you mentioned, computer Braille works best for that.
