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.
