Our answer: the Activator Pro.

Additional highlights

BrailleShot

BrailleShot is the equivalent of a screenshot for users of a Braille display.If you activate BrailleShot, the output on the Braille display is recorded as a text file. Combine BrailleShot with the DirectTransfer function to transfer the text created with BrailleShot to a connected device.

Active Tactile Control (ATC)

For the Activator Pro, we have further developed our patented ATC technology for automatic switching at the end of the line. ATC is now also used to determine the active Braille segment when ActiveSplit is activated. As a result, input elements such as the keyboard and QuickAccess keys are always assigned to the correct Braille segment, without you having to do anything!

Integrated shorthand translation

The translation and back-translation from full text to shorthand is directly integrated into the Activator Pro. We rely on RTFC, the world's leading translation tool for German, English and French. The Activator Pro also handles shorthand translation into Unified English Braille with ease.

The perfect addition: HelpTech+ for iPhone and iPad

The HelpTech+ app, available free of charge for iPhone and iPad in the App Store, continuously adds many new functions to the Activator Pro, making it a next-generation Braille experience.

Braille monitor

The integrated Braille monitor allows a sighted person to follow the information output on the Braille display directly on the iPhone screen. Including the indication of the reading position, marked text and the cursor position.

Braille dialogue

The Braille dialogue enables communication between deaf-blind and sighted people. The iPhone or iPad reads out the Braille input and the voice input on the iPhone or the on-screen keyboard can be used to respond.

Dictation function & speech output

With voice input, you can easily dictate texts instead of typing them yourself. The recognized text is then either saved in a new file on the Activator Pro or inserted into an existing file at the desired position. With the voice output function, you can have texts on the Activator Pro read aloud via the iPhone or iPad's speakers.

File manager & text transfer

With HelpTech+ you can copy files back and forth between the Activator Pro and your iPhone or iPad.
