I'm a little late to the party in saying that the new Open Book 8 is out in the wild. Sporting a new keyboard layout, the ability for OB to use multiple scanning engines and the Realspeak voices the update may be worth the $150 upgrade for those of you who have an older version of the product. And for those of you moving to Vista or Office 07 the upgrade falls into the "must buy" category of upcoming AT purchases.
Speaking of updates .. FS has updated their site. To see the new look and navigation check out the link below.
