Product Description

A single line of signage-quality, 20 braille cells accurately represent any six- or eight-dot braille code, in any language, and for any discipline.

Developed by APH, Orbit Research, and The Transforming Braille Group, LLC, Orbit Reader 20™ allows for simple transferring between this device’s different user-friendly functions, which include reading, writing, bookmarking, searching, creating and editing braille, as well as file management.

Through the use of Bluetooth® wireless technology with iOS and Android™ devices, or through USB or Bluetooth® for Windows® and Mac®, Orbit Reader 20™ performs as a reader displaying the content of files stored on the SD™ card.

In Remote mode, Orbit Reader 20™ becomes a terminal that displays the braille for the app running on the phone, tablet, or PC.In the USB configuration, it supports both serial and human interface device (HID) protocols. If the screen reader supports it, no driver installation is required.
