Advanced Mobile Management of BrailleNote Touch Plus

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 3:20 PM PDT  
Grand AB  

The BrailleNote Touch Plus is a Google certified Android-based Braille notetaker developed by the HumanWare Group. Numerous Braille notetakers use a heavily customized interface running on a proprietary embedded platform. While the BrailleNote Touch Plus was not the first Braille notetaker to adopt a customized mainstream operating system, or even the only Android-based Braille notetaker on the market but the current design of the BrailleNote Touch Plus makes it most compatible with mobile management solutions. The modern network-connected landscape requires constant vigilance to protect endpoints from a multitude of threats. This is achieved using a combination of tools and platforms where each solution plays a part in endpoint management and protection. Along with HumanWare’s default custom apps and its accessibility services called Keysoft, the BrailleNote Touch is an Android 8.10 device with Chrome as the default browser. The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind has an environment where we have sixty students using the BrailleNote Touch Plus as their Braille notetaker. This presentation will examine the device enrollment process, configuration of device policies, managed apps, app, and security auditing, along with the benefits of using BrailleNote Touch Plus in a managed Google Workspace environment. This presentation will demonstrate how a BrailleNote Touch Plus can be managed in large numbers or as a part of a school district’s Android device management strategy.
