Braille Displays and
Note Takers

​A Braille display is a tactile output device for blind people. Braille displays enable blind computer users to read the information displayed on the screen. The contents of a computer screen are transferred to the line, where the information in braille can be felt with the fingers. Depending on the model, between 16 and 88 characters can be displayed. A screen reader is required so that the content can be converted into braille or output by speech.


Depending on the version, the models have an integrated Braille keyboard, an internal memory and notetaker functions. A Braille display can be easily connected to a computer, notebook, iPhone or tablet via a USB port or Bluetooth.
