Perkins Braillers

NEW – Perkins Smart Brailler


Perkins Products is proud to introduce the NEW Perkins SMART Brailler® – the evolution of the Perkins Brailler® from a low-technology, beloved classic to a high-technology learning and teaching tool. Its built-in video screen combined with audio feedback shows and speaks letters and words in real-time as they are being brailled.
The SMART Brailler, developed by Perkins Products in conjunction with the American Printing House for the Blind, opens the door to a new, more intuitive way for individuals, both sighted and blind, to communicate, teach and learn braille together. Now teachers in a mainstream classroom can see what their students are brailling. Sighted parents can help their visually impaired children with homework. And students can discover the fun in their own braille education. Sighted or blind, we can all share the learning experience and CONNECT THE DOTS!
How does the SMART Brailler do this? It includes:
• A video screen for instantaneous audio and visual feedback – displays SimBraille and print
• Text-to-speech from acapela group so the letters, words and sentences can be read back while brailling
• Ability to edit, save and transfer electronic documents via USB
• Headphone jack and volume control
• Operates as a mechanical brailler for extended use
• Rechargeable and removable battery
