I remember teaching a blind friend the G800...in detail..He amazed me with his ability to operate the G800..

The G-70 wasn't so bad, I had it down pretty quickly, but I don't think it is any easier than Yamaha's.

Fran, I taught several blind people on our more recent, and a few older, Yamaha arranger models....that is also why there was a protest from many visually impaired users when it was suggested the next Tyros go to a touchscreen.

I can't say that it was the reason Tyros5 remained with a regular screen, but apparently it is far easier to use for those with sight problems than a touch screen.

I believe it was discussed briefly here as well.

Yamaha Tyros4, Yamaha MS-60S Powered Monitors(2), Yamaha CS-01, Yamaha TQ-5, Yamaha PSR-S775.
