Tiger Braille Dot

Preferred Shape

Tiger Technology, known for producing superior high resolution graphics, has now been re-designed for better braille readability. This new braille dot is smoother to the touch making frequent and extended braille reading more enjoyable while maintaining Tiger’s unmatched detail in producing tactile graphics.

Customizable Height

Tiger offers three different dot heights for braille, allowing users to customize their documents to better suit individual needs.  This means that users who have greater sensitivity can lower the braille dot height to a more comfortable level and braille readers with less sensitivity who often find conventional braille difficult to read can raise the dot height offering greater flexibility for all.

 Enhanced Durability

The Tiger braille dot employs a pyramid-like shape making it more durable than conventional braille while continuing to maintain perfect braille spacing. Tests prove that the unique shape keeps the dot from easily tearing and allows users to stack documents without compromising the height of the dot. This means that documents tend to maintain readability longer which is more desirable among users.

High-Resolution TIGER Tactile Graphics

TIGER Graphics

The VP Color Elite braille embosser offer high-resolution TIGER 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!

Advantages of Color Ink

Inclusive Learning

The VP Color Elite braille embosser combines braille, raised tactile images and color ink – all in one document that can be shared by all. Combing ink and braille not only encourages greater collaboration between sighted and blind peers but also means educators only need to maintain one document. Store the braille, tactile graphics and original print information all in the same document!

Interactive Learning

Combining multiple learning modalities such as sight and touch, helps students learn faster and leads to better learning retention. That’s the great part about the the VP Color Elite! Adding color ink to braille and tactile graphic makes learning more inclusive, fun and interactive for all students.
