The Braille Display

A Braille Display is a technology that replaces the screen. It allows the blind to read the screen in another way.

 The computer screen is organized into lines and columns. The Displays at Sao Mai Computer Center can “translate” (in Braille that can be touched-read on a bar) 40 characters at a time of the selected line.

With navigation buttons (arrow keys) you can read the rest of the line or scroll up and down.

Another kind of Braille Display (in the picture above) also implements keys by which you can write in Braille code.

It is equipped with Function keys so that it may be used instead of the keyboard.

A Braille Display can be also used in conjunction with a screen reader software.
