This section includes manual machines for creating Braille. Some are portable, others are designed as desktop machines, similar to traditional manual typewriters. They have six keys to produce the Braille (one key for each dot in a Braille cell).
Some Braille machines can use standard A5 size paper (although Braille produced on this will not be very durable) others require special Braille paper (Braille created on this is more durable), or can be used with labelling materials such as Dymo tape.1View references and sources of further information ›
