Embossers print Braille onto special Braille paper, from a computer. They are connected to the computer like a text printer or can be connected to note takers. The paper is thicker and more expensive than standard printer paper.
Software is required to convert text to Braille before it is printed/embossed (known as Braille translation software). For more information on this software, refer to the RNIB's information page: 'braille software'.
Embossers can be noisy, if an embosser is going to be used regularly and cannot be kept in a room away from people, an acoustic hood or soundproof case is recommended. View relevant references ‣
