Braille displays

Braille displays are tactile devices that are usually placed in front of a computer keyboard and provide the user with the means to read the contents of the computer screen by touch in Braille. Braille displays have a number of cells, each cell has six or eight pins which are electronically moved up and down, to create a Braille version of the characters that appear on the computer screen. Each Braille cell represents one character from the screen. An 80-cell Braille display represents approximately one line of text on a screen.

Note that note takers (listed in the Writing equipment for blind or partially sighted users section) often have their own Braille displays and some can be connected to a desktop computer and used as a Braille display.

Braille displays also work with screen reader software. DLF Data does not list software, for details of screen reader software contact/visit the website of Ability Net www.abilitynet.org.uk, the RNIB www.rnib.org.uk or Oats Project www.oatsoft.org
