IndexPrint is a drag and drop application for OS X to send preformatted braille documents (.brf, .brl or .txt) and firmware files (.ibe) to the V4 embosser. Tested on OS X version 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8.


Braille Table Viewer 1.0.4

The Braille Table Viewer is used to inspect a braille table generated by Embosser Utility 5. The file extension for a braille table file is *.ebc.



Sysconfig file to increase power on embossing head motors

The power on the embossing head motors found in Braille Boxes delivered before the summer of 2012 ran quite low. The effect may result in vertical alignment issues between the embossing heads. This may be solved by sending the "config_braill_box.ibe" file to the embosser via IbPrint. After the file is transferred all setup parameters is set to factory default.


Paper Guide Upgrade kit mounting instructions

The paper arms are now re-designed to avoid the risk of the paper getting stuck in the inner paper guide (arm) front hinge. This hardware improvement is implemented in all new Braille Boxes s/n 54320 and above.
