Print Braille from USB memory

usb connecter V5Connect your personal USB memory stick to the USB host port connector on the V5 Index Braille embosser to emboss standard files using Index-direct-Braille: idB. [ie. emboss without using a computer]

Supported file formats for direct braille printing from USB are:
  • .doc

Available in contracted or literary braille format, the braille translation will be made using the active layout settings selected during the setup of the braille embosser.
