Braille Writers

It is an upward writing machine for writing on one side of the paper, enabling the Braille to be read as it is written. This machine can be compared to a normal type writer with a major difference that it has only nine keys, three for paper setting and six for embossing, the brailler embosses combinations of six dots in a Braille cell.

The Braille machine is made of metal with an enamel finish, with plastic key-tops and adjustable margin stops. The paper is roller-fed and line spacing is achieved by pressing a special key. The most popular Braille writers are:
