The Canute 360 is a standalone desktop multi-line Braille e-reader. Yes, “360” means 360 braille cells: 9 lines with 40 characters per line. There are two distributors in the US (AT Guys, USA and American Thermoform Corporation, USA) along with one distributor in the UK (Techno-Vision Systems Ltd). Currently, the US distributors price the Canute around $2,500.
The video below discusses and demonstrates the Canute. Note: The video was created in 2018 – at that time, the Canute had not been publicly released.
Teachers of the Visually Impaired: Please share your personal experiences with the Canute – we would love to hear about students using the Canute in the classroom!
