Index Braille printer driver 8.1.0

The latest version of the Index Braille printer driver contains fixes for Windows 8/10 and supports both 32 Bit and 64 Bit versions.

Index printer drivers are available for both Windows and Mac. All Index embossers need printer drivers in order to function correctly. The Index printer drivers may be used with commercial braille editors and tactile graphics programs.

The printer driver support Index embossers generation V4 and V3. 
This version suppresses unsupported BiDi-requests, which fixes a problem on Windows 8.x where the printer prints garbage each time the printer is connected to the computer.
