Braille increases literacy and access to the printed word. If you're a strong Braille reader, you can benefit from using a Braille printer and/or Braille display. You can use a Braille printer and translation software to print hard-copy Braille from computer generated documents for a wide variety of applications. You can use a Braille display in conjunction with a screen reader software program to access your personal computer and the internet. If you're deaf-blind, Braille printers and displays can assist you with day-to-day communication and computer access for work, school, or home independence.
