mobile device braille printingIn today's world we can now use mobile devices for many tasks that once required computers. Making the V5 embosser line compatible with modern portable devices has been critical to the development process. This concept is revolutionary to the braille printing market as for the first time every, you may emboss braille from your smart phone and tablet from an Index V5 braille embosser. This application is available from any Wi-fi connected device with a browser.

Begin embossing from your portable device by ensuring that your mobile device and Index V5 braille embosser are connected to Wifi. Then use the Index app to simply upload your file. The embosser will use idB (the embedded direct printing application) automatically to print the file. idB translates braille into Grade 1 or Grade 2 braille, formats the page layout, duplexing and page number.

Print emails, notes, online content, etc. by saving the text in any standard file format such as doc, pdf, txt or brf. Then emboss braille from your mobile device such as iPhone, Android or Windows phone. 

Using the same web interface (Index app) you can also manage your V5 braille embosser from your portable devices.

  • Repair and install a new SD card.
  • Run service functions for testing.
  • Set up desired print layout, communication settings and endless other embosser MENU options.
