Product Description

Index-direct-Braille (idB) is a built-in function within Index V4 and V5 embossers and corresponding printer drivers. With idB, for the first time ever it is possible to directly print standard files such as:

  • .docx
  • .doc
  • .pdf
  • .brf

Users may emboss the files in either Grade 1 (literary) or Grade 2 (contracted) braille. The braille printout is formatted to the braille page size and layout settings set in the braille embosser automatically. This is available without the use of, and additional cost of, a braille editor. idB is free of charge and the text-to-braille files may be adapted to many languages through the Liblouis open source project.

idB is attractive due to its simplicity. Once the V5 Index braille embosser is set up with paper size, characters per line, lines per page, margins, duplexing, page numbering, text-to-braille translation language, you are then ready to start embossing braille. idB offers a modern multi-platform concept that enables you to emboss your files from Windows, Mac or Linux. In fact, idB is the ‘first’ commercial braille printing application to support printing from a Mac or Linux computer.

  • idB is free of charge.
  • Uses standard communication protocol.
  • A V5 embosser connected to idB can connect to a network, offering braille printing access for all LAN members on the network.

Brailling with idB is easy. After the file is transferred to the V4 or V5 embosser, there will be a short delay (about 5-10 seconds) during which the embosser beeps and the file is being converted to braille. Then it prints out automatically.
