English Index V5 Embossers idB Finally mobile printing Literacy is one of the most important things for successful development. This applies to individuals and societies, for the sighted and the blind. I am sad to say that today a majority of the world's blind people are illiterate. This impairs their opportunities in life. For me it is obvious that the blind should have the same opportunities as the sighted. Index Braille aims to simplify braille printing so that printed braille documents are available for the blind, whenever and wherever they need them. I believe that this will lead to a higher literacy rate among the blind and a higher number of successful blind persons. I am proudly introducing the FanFold-D V5, a major milestone to modernize the traditional braille production market. Its excellent performance, attractive features, easy maintenance, and competitive price make it the standard of high-speed tractor-fed embosser for many years to come. With the new FanFold-D V5, BrailleBox V5, Everest-D V5 and Basic-D V5 Index Braille printer portfolio is complete, supporting all market needs. Including a powerful Linux computer 'inside' the Index V5 printers opens a window of opportunities, including: • Index-direct-Braille (idB). You can convert Word/ PDF documents directly into literary (Grade 1) or contracted braille (Grade 2). It is not required to purchase a separate braille editor. • A web-app is implemented 'inside' the printer. It supports printing from mobile devices and will also soon be able to preview and edit braille file, view embosser status, embosser setting and enable remote support. • The Acapela synthetic speech guides users in many languages. • Print via Wi-Fi, wired network or a USB cord. • Print directly from a USB flash drive, guided by synthetic speech feedback. • A smart user interface with adaptive speech feedback in twenty languages, enabling users to be less dependable on user manuals. The braille embosser market is small. Every year a few thousand units are produced, slightly more than the annual production of the luxury sports car brand Lamborghini. Playing in a small market we have a lot to win by collaboration. Since 2015, Index has collaborated with other companies as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of braille printers using Index technology platform. Our journey continues, aiming towards our goal "Braille printing made easy". You are welcome to join.
