Bones launches Milestone 312, the Next Generation Audio Engine for Blind People

30 April, 2008 by Peter Verhoeven

Bones is proud to announce the release of Milestone 312, an enhanced version of the successful Milestone 311. Milestone 312 offers the unparalleled benefits of portability, usability and reliability that the Visually Impaired relies on. Milestone 312 has a multitude of new functions, including variable playbackspeed, Text-To-Speech, playback, Daisy 3.0, integrated RFID reader, integrated FM tuner and direct connection of stereo microphones. The hardware includes 1GB internalFlash memory, USB 2.0 OTG High Speed connectivity, a clock and the proven strong, crystal clear speaker.

What has not changed is the ease of operation: Milestone 312 comes in the well known case of its predecessor, at the size of a credit card with 5 front buttons. A worldwide novelty, however, is the degree Milestone 312 can be configured. Everything is possible between being fully fledged, packed with functions and being reduced to one simple function. Customers pay only for those functions they want to enable. This ensures the individual user won't get lost in a sea of options.

"While Milestone 312 combines a very rich set of possibilities, it reflects the diversity of the Visually Impaired, since people only pay for what they intend to use", says Stephan Knecht, Managing Director of Bones, Inc., "Milestone 312 combines the best of profound knowledge about customer requirements, skilled engineering and production. Milestone products are manufactured in Switzerland and each unit undergoes rigid quality checks".

See Milestone 312 in action at the SightCity trade fair in Frankfurt, between 7th and 9th May 2008. Mass production is currently being ramped up. Be prepared to get your Milestone 312 as of July 2008.
