Features:

NEW Power-Dot Braille

Power-Dot Braille makes the strongest, most tactile braille dots available from any desktop braille embosser but still maintains a pleasing rounded dot shape. For the first time, it is possible to have production-quality braille on a desktop embosser.

High-Resolution Tactile Graphics

IRIE embossers offer high-resolution tactile graphics. With 8 different distinctive dot heights users can transform images into readable tactile graphics. The dot height is automatically adjusted based on the visual color of the image. The darker the color the higher the dot and the lighter the color the lower the dot making it easy for users of all skill levels to make custom tactile graphics.

The eight different dot heights also allow you to add more details to images and diagrams. You can easily make a map more readable by filling the interior state or country with a low dot height or pattern while leaving lakes or bodies of water with no fill for enhanced readability.

Better yet, you can use any type of graphics software to do the customization. Use standard graphics software such as the Adobe Design Suite or CorelDraw or use popular tactile graphics software such as TactileView, Tiger Designer or Quicktac to do dot-by-dot editing or add braille and math labels too!

IRIE embossers are built to last with robust hardware that extends the life of the embosser and with a local US Headquarters you can be assured that if an issue does arise it will be resolved quickly – usually within one working day.  You never have to pay more for great, fast service for IRIE embossers.

Testimonials

North Idaho College

Great product, training, support and sales experience from IrieAT!

I was in desperate need for an alternative to hand-Brailing  information for my institution’s needs.  Naturally, I was highly skeptical of the options available for embossing Braille and tactile graphics, due to the price of such hardware.  I ended up taking a recommendation from a colleague on IrieAT’s BrailleSheet 120 and think my colleague under-sold what I would be getting.

First off, when I made a sales inquiry with IrieAT, I received a very detailed reply back the same day from someone who seemed genuinely interested in my specific needs.  I even received a lot of great tips on how to structure my material for optimal experience from low-/no-vision users who read Braille.

After purchasing the BrailleSheet 120, I immediately tapped into IrieAT Support, having an issue that I didn’t understand.  That issue was quickly laid to rest in a very detailed and hands-on approach that I did not expect, but was very grateful to have.

Next, when I requested training on the device and software, I realized there were a lot more opportunities with the BrailleSheet 120 than I had originally planned for.  Shortly after the personalized training, I began working on some event materials, and was very pleased that double-sided Brailing went just as fast as printing the materials in the first place.

Overall, I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience with IrieAT and the BrailleSheet 120.  It’s been a game changer for the work I do as an IT Accessibility Coordinator.
