New “Power-Dot™ Braille”
Aiming for the ultimate in braille quality, ViewPlus collaborated with Braillo to create a braille dot on a desktop embosser like the braille dot made by a Braillo production embosser. The result of that collaboration is 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.
Superior High-Resolution Tactile Graphics
The VP Columbia 2 offers the highest-resolution tactile graphics available on an embosser. With 8 different dot heights, users can create distinct tactile graphics more easily than other embossers. Even if images have intersecting lines, like graphs, readers can easily distinguish lines and grids, which can be embossed to different heights.
Braille & Tactile Graphics Software Included
Tiger Software Suite (TSS), is your complete solution for producing braille and tactile graphics. TSS makes it easy to get accurate braille translation in seconds. Insert text and graphics within familiar programs such as Word and Excel and translate with the touch of a button. TSS is great for users of all skill levels!
Compact, Light-Weight Design
And with a compact, light-weight design, the VP Columbia 2 braille embosser fits at any desk making it the ideal solutions for students, professionals or anyone who needs high-quality braille and tactile graphics at their fingertips.
