6Dot Innovations
Home of the 6Dot Braille Labeler. The device is lightweight at 1.5 pounds, and has a built-in Braille keyboard that can create Grade 1 and Grade 2 Braille. Keystrokes control an electronic embossing mechanism inside the labeler, which means that a light touch on the keyboard will result in clearly-embossed Braille. Pressure and force are no longer required of the user for high-quality Braille type. Additionally, users can connect a USB QWERTY keyboard to the device and create Grade 1 Braille that way. This is great for users who are not personally familiar with Braille but wish to create labels for others to use. The labeler's smooth, ergonomic design and light-touch controls also makes it a great choice for children, who can now compose Braille with small hands at an earlier age.
