The Braille Box  was embraced with a new thought felt design exceeding all original techniques and for this was the winner of the people's choice for The Grand Award of Design. The interface is built with a clear contrast and an active space that is easy to use. The embosser gives more of the visually impaired the opportunity to read not only their own words, but that of others. Braille Box has already managed to take more than half of the existing market and is continuously spreading its unique expressive design around the world.

No noise pollution


Braille Box has excellent Braille quality and makes very little noise. When printing, it produces no more sound than a normal conversation, considered acceptable in an office environment. This is made possible because the Braille embosser is completely sealed off,  muffling even the ventilation.

The best sheet feeder


Braille on cut-sheet paper is the future. It is inexpensive and hassle free compared to the more demanding and expensive fan-folded braille paper. The sheet feeder also makes it possible to print Braille on every available paper format and even thin foils in other materials. Index Braille is the only Braille producer to develop a flawless Braille printer for copy paper. The secret is the Braille optimized sheet feeder, a technical solution owned by Index Braille.
