The Next Generation Perkins/APH Mechanical Braille Writer

Silver
2009

This mechanical Braille typewriter is lighter, smaller and quieter, and requires less key force than its predecessor. A user creates the six dots that form a Braille character by activating the six main front keys: Braille letters and numbers are embossed on the paper loaded into the machine.
