Index V5 Embossers
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,
• 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
Our journey continues, aiming towards our goal
"Braille printing made easy". You are welcome to join.
