It's a little like a typewriter, but it produces braille.
These are side views, it's not very big.
This is the top view. The silver bar is the handle.
There are nine buttons and a carriage return on the front of the brailler. Six of the buttons correspond to the six dots in the braille cell. The large button in the middle is the space bar. The other two buttons move the embosser head. The carriage return moves the embossser back to the beginning of the line.
This is how you push the buttons to emboss the paper.
And here is the finished product!
So that is how to use a Perkins Brailler to produce braille.
It's lightweight, portable, and doesn't use electricity. It's a wonderful machine and is made by Perkins.
Is there any things else you want to know about the Brailler? Let me know in the comments.
