The INDEX Basic-D is the best selling braille embosser model in the world for a reason: it is the fastest braille embosser at the price while also being extremely robust and attractive. Building on that tradition, INDEX now offers the Basic-D Version 5 (V5) with modern connectivity options like wireless embossing, USB embossing and even on-board braille translation to automatically convert .doc, .txt and .pdf files to braille.
The Basic-D V5 is a modular design, so our US service center can repair quickly – usually within one working day – and can even remote into your embosser (with permission) to diagnose and repair most potential issues without the embosser ever leaving your desk. You never have to pay more for good, fast service for INDEX embossers.
Put away the swell paper machines and specialty tactile graphics tools. The Basic-D V5 now embosses high-resolution tactile graphics without compromising the quality and feel of the braille dot itself. Ask for a sample. You’ll be amazed at the quality of the tactile graphics that can come from a machine that also embosses perfect braille dots.
