The SMART Brailler® is an early learning tool designed to promote an interactive educational experience between students, teachers and parents by displaying, vocalizing, and brailling what
a student types.
Accelerates Learning: Encourages multi-sensory learning through visual, tactile and auditory feedback, increasing the student’s ability to process new information and making learning fun.
Lightens the Load: Weighs 20 percent less than the classic Perkins Brailler, making it easy to transport between home and classroom.
Integrates with Mainstream Technology: Edits, saves and transfers brailled documents to digital text files via USB, letting sighted teachers or parents read the document on a computer.
Involves Non-Braille Users: Enables better collaboration between students and sighted teachers or parents using Roman letters on the display screen to mirror what is being brailled.
Reliable Support: One year warranty and repair service training availability, ensuring that any problem with your product is resolved quickly.

"Make braille cool and fun"
"It’s a really important tool for my student. I attribute a good amount of his interest to learn early Braille literacy to the SMART Brailler — without it, we would not have been able to build his skills."
Kathryn Traut, TVI
“It was difficult to motivate him to learn braille. But once he tried the SMART Brailler, his engagement and motivation level surged.”
Assistive Technology Specialist/Teacher, Perkins School for the Blind
“This product really helps bridge the gap between sighted parents and blind children. I think it would make homework a lot less intimidating for parents.”
