Handy Tech Braille cells are concavely shaped and sloped backwards to match the finger tip perfectly and therefore allow reading Braille in a natural and relaxed hand position.
When reading on a Handy Tech Braille display, all eight dots of a Braille cell can be touched at once. The front and back movements of the reading finger to read a Braille character are minimized and the reading flow can improve significantly. Compared to a flat Braille presentation, on a backwards sloping Braille display it is no longer necessary to stretch out the reading finger. While reading, the reading hand can stay in a natural, slightly panned position. Stress is taken off the reading finger and the reading hand’s wrist.
The Braille cells on a Handy Tech Braille display are extended by a guiding elevation towards the back. Press this elevation to activate the curser routing key of the corresponding Braille cell. Curser routing keys are used to place the curser on a specific position within a text or to activate a button.
Only at Handy Tech you will find triple action keys to the left and right of the display. The keys follow the concave shape of the display perfectly. Use the triple action keys to operate your computer. Three different functions like scroll up, scroll down and enter are assigned to the upper, lower or middle section of the triple action key.
The concavely shaped Braille elements, the unique design of the curser routing keys, as well as the triple action keys are protected for Handy Tech by the utility patent 20 2004 017 471.5 "Ergonomically Braille Presentation".
