After a brief absence, the American Printing House for the Blind has reintroduced the Refreshabraille 18-cel braille display. The latest rendition, known as version 3, includes a new, simpler Bluetooth pairing mode, ergonomic updates to the directional pad and space bar, and Micro USB charging (the older version had Mini USB). it still sells for $1,695 and is available now. We've included the list of changes from the latest APH newsletter below.
Updates to Refreshabraille 18, Version 3
- Choose secure or simple Bluetooth pairing. Simple pairing lets the Refreshabraille automatically pair with any device you initiate pairing on while secure requires that a code be confirmed on both devices before pairing can take place
- Reverse the advance bars. Reversing the advance bars lets you advance with your left hand while reading with your right hand
- Directional pad allows for one hand operation and ease of use
- More ergonomic ridged space bar
- Now uses industry standard micro USB which is easier to plug in and also to replace if lost
- New PC software means that updating and using the Refreshabraille 18 via USB has never been easier
