The ultimate 40-cell Braille display with notetaker function and multi-Bluetooth

This new version of Active Braille builds on the success of the previous model by providing a 40-character braille cell. It is even more compact, ergonomically optimised with improved controls and more functionality. The Active Braille is ideal for use with a laptop, PC, and smartphone.

The Active Braille impresses not only as a Braille display but also as a powerful organiser, with space for hundreds of books (64 GB storage), an ergonomic and very quiet Braille keyboard, control key, joystick, and vibration signals. 

Enjoy pure reading pleasure with patented ATC technology, multi-Bluetooth, and a battery life of approximately 40 hours.

The ideal refreshable braille display

Active Braille is directly usable thanks to HID technology and is immediately recognised by all screen readers, e.g., JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver. The Active Braille is controlled and charged via USB C.


Multi Bluetooth

In addition to the USB-C connection, multi-Bluetooth allows the wireless connection of three additional smart devices for Braille and audio.


The pure reading pleasure

Hundreds of books (64 GB) can be read effortlessly with the patented ATC technology. No more annoying scrolling; just pure Braille reading pleasure. With 40 hours of battery life, the Active Braille is ideal for on-the-go reading or comfortable on the sofa.


Organiser ToGo

Open the carrying case, switch it on, and off you go. Instantly, without waiting, you can make notes even while standing. The Active Braille offers comfortable notetaker functionality and many features of an organiser like a scheduler, clock, alarm clock, player, and MusikBraille via polyphonic sound chip.

The notes can be easily transferred, whether at school, university, or work. Simply copy and paste them into an email or WhatsApp message and send them.


The control center

The additional space bar, centered between the Braille keys, can be used to enter direct control commands for the computer. The Ctrl key interrupts the speech output, for example. Even starting the screen reader is possible this way. e.g., Chord j+7+8 to start JAWS (Shift + Alt + J). 
The additional space bar is especially well placed for small hands, making it easier to type notes.


Discrete vibration signals

Using left/right combinations of vibrations, the Active Braille discreetly emits signals via two vibrators. With super-quiet braille keys and braille modules combined with vibration signals, the Active Braille is ideal in the classroom or at meetings. The vibration signals can also be combined with sound signals.


Sound output with MP3 player

Active Braille uses high-quality stereo speakers to play music, audiobooks, or audio descriptions. Entire playlists can be played while taking notes. Playback of audiobooks can even be done at double or triple speed.
