Icon and Braille Plus Now Work with Bookshare

February 9, 2009

Last friday, LevelStar released an upgrade for the Icon and Braille Plus — version 2.0 — which includes support for the new Bookshare site. Bookshare support is the same as it was before the bookshare update, except that you can’t search by category, but you can search recently added books to find out what’s new. LevelStar hopes to add category search to a later release.

This release includes other useful features, including a radio tuner for easily selecting among Shoutcast Internet radio stations, an interface to simplify working with Twitter, and a revised calendar and address book designed to synchronize more effectively with outlook. If you have an Icon or a Braille Plus, you can use its check for Updates feature to download and install the new release, which includes a What’s New document and a revised manual.
