The history of the Basic-D Braille embosser

In 1988 Basic Blue Bar was developed as a part of our first generation of modern braille embossers. The small, light and efficient Basic was received well by customers from its initial introduction in which propelled for further development.

In 1995 Basic V2 was introduced. Its appearance was much like the Basic model is today; a well-known and much appreciated user-friendly design. The Basic V2 comprised of the Basic-D (double-sided embossing) and Basic-S (single-sided embossing) embosser models. 

Basic-D V3 was released in 2002. During the life of the V3 series the Basic-S model was removed as double-sided Braille became the norm. 

Basic-D V4 introduced in 2011. The V4 platform is one of Index Braille's largest developmental processes in order to follow user demand. Both the hardware and software underwent a transformation that shook the Braille embosser market.

Basic-D V5 introduced in 2016. The V5 platform includes also WiFi/Bluetooth support, USB Host (USB memory stick) connection, an optimized user interface, the BrailleApp for printing standard files, setup and managing of the V5 printer.
