Organizer ToGo

Open the carrying case, switch on and off you go. Instantly, without waiting time you can make notes even while standing. The Active Braille offers comfortable notetaker functionality and many features of an organizer like scheduler, clock, alarm clock, player and MusikBraille via polyphonic sound chip.
 
The notes - whether in school, at university or work - can be easily transferred. Just paste them directly into an email or WhatsApp and send them off.

The control center

The additional space bar, centered between the Braille keys, can be used to enter direct control commands to the computer. The Ctrl key interrupts the speech output, for example. Even starting the screen reader is possible this way. e.g. Chord j+7+8 to start JAWS (Shift + Alt + J). 
The additional space bar is especially well placed for small hands, making it easier to type notes.

Discrete vibration signals

Using left/right combinations of vibrations, the Active Braille discreetly emits signals via two vibrators. With super-quiet braille keys and braille modules combined with vibration signals, the Active Braille is ideal in the classroom or at meetings. The vibration signals can also be combined with sound signals.

Sound output with MP3 player

Music, audio books or audio descriptions are played by Active Braille through high-quality stereo speakers. Entire playlists can be played while taking notes. Playback of audio books can even be done in double or triple speed
