Super Compact and Easy to Handle
Despite its tiny size, Easy Braille is a fully functional Braille display. Connected via BLUETOOTH® wireless technology or USB, Easy Braille doesn't require power cables, unless recharging the included triple A batteries after use with BLUETOOTH®.
Easy Braille is equipped with 40 piezoelectric Braille elements. Each of these elements is equipped with a cursor routing key. This allows you to place the cursor on the position of the reading finger while reading Braille.
Easy Braille also offers two navigation keys and 8 function keys. The layout of the function keys allows you to use them for Braille input.
The Perfect Match
Easy Braille can be combined with a laptop, cell phone, PDA, Apple computer running OSX 10.5 (Leopard) operating system or any Windows based computer. Easy Braille transforms screen information into Braille. In addition to speech output, screen reading programs drive the Braille display.
Easy Braille is ergonomically designed. Its Braille elements are concavely shaped, following the natural form of the finger tips. These unique Handy Tech Braille cells allow the user to read in a relaxed hand position. The navigation keys for scrolling through a text can easily be pressed by the thumb of the reading hand while reading.

Easy Braille and Braille Music
Combined with the GOODFEEL Braille Music Translator software from Dancing Dots and the JAWS for Windows screen reader, you can read Braille music scores with your Easy Braille.

Blind musicians can scan and read musical scores as well as easily create print and equivalent Braille transcriptions for collaboration with sighted or blind teachers, colleagues or students.
