Braille Displays

Braille displays are used to assist individuals who have vision limitations that prevent them from accomplishing essential job tasks. They accomplish this by allowing the user to read content from word processing documents, databases, spreadsheet applications and the internet by feeling refreshable Braille one line at a time. The Braille displays are used with screen readers and allow individuals who are Braille literate to interact with content in a more precise way than solely listening to speech output.
