Learn to get the most out of your VarioUltra with this comprehensive six-lesson audio program from Mystic Access!
About The Program.
This product was created from a series of teleseminars that were conducted by Lisa Salinger of Mystic access in February and March of 2017. The calls were recorded via our teleconferencing line and were then edited for clarity, and to reduce silences, phone artifacts and other background sounds. This series of calls was actually held at two different times with different students in each time slot, so this product is the very best of the material from all of the calls that were held.
Who is this program for?
If you have a VarioUltra, or you are thinking of purchasing one, you will likely find this audio program to be a valuable resource. However, it will be especially helpful to those who already have a VarioUltra, either 20 or 40 cells. The program is broken into six primary lessons and two supplementary lessons to make exploring the material as intuitive as possible. The program is available in DAISY and MP3 formats, both of which you’ll have immediate access to download after purchasing.
Why might I want to purchase this audio program?
The VarioUltra functions as both a notetaker and a braille display. Each task seems to have multiple ways to get it done, and remembering all possible combinations presents its own challenges. Lisa Salinger has been using VarioUltra for over a year, and Braille notetakers in general and other related technology for over twenty-five years. Her patient, thorough style will help you understand important concepts, and learn how to commit relevant facts to memory. You will also gain insight from the questions, comments and frustrations shared by the class participants.
