[orca-list] new cherrypal africa

please if appropriate pass this onto the list and all other blindness email lists.
starting next week the $99 www.cherrypal.com africa netbook will be shipping with either windows xp or Ubuntu Linux. So instead of paying $6000 for a brailleNote, you could pay $1900 for the Africa and aph refreshabraille. I have written the owner of cherrypal asking him to include NVDA, firefox, and Jarte in there also.
Why pay $6000 for a braillenote when the Africa costing $99 and a new refreshabraille costing $1695 you have a notetaker with braille display for $1800 or so. Don't feel like paying $1695 for a braille display? I've seen themm on the ACB braille forum high tech swap shop for $100 or so at times and also on ebay.
so with that combination you can now have a decent notetaker with speech, spend $50 on ms-office, download simpleocr or buy fineReader pay $50 for a cannon canoscan and you have yourself an ok notetaker and reading system for $200 or $300. So once again starting next week cherrypal will ship the Africa netbook with your choice of Ubuntu or Windows xp, hopefully, eventually knoppix and knoppix-adriane as well. and perhaps later down the line, vinux.

Tired of Microsoft Windows and paying thousands for screen-readers? try out NVDA for Windows, or try out and switch to grml, Ubuntu, Vinux, or knoppix-adriane Linux desktops. Knoppix ubuntu and vinux-cli-max are the most accessible for beginners.
