Product Description: 

The Braille BookMaker Express is a portable desk-top Braille printer that produces Braille characters on both sides of the page for individuals who are blind. Commands are issued from a calculator-style keypad and confirmed by tones so that the operator can change settings without having to print out prompts and responses in Braille. A brief comma sequence places the unit in single-sided mode, where it can become a terminal using the optional external keyboard, or generate samples for easier proofreading by a sighted operator.
