Supplier: Freedom Scientific
ElBraille Docking Station View

ElBraille StudentThe ElBraille is a state-of-the-art portable notetaker with a computer docking station specifically designed for users who are blind or deaf-blind and have a desire to be connected – at school, while at home or for active people on the go.  The ElBraille was designed to be the “take anywhere” replacement device for the dedicated braille notetaker and combines the power and flexibility of a modern computer running Windows 10 operating systems with JAWS and a Braille display with a full Braille keyboard.  This combination provides a fully accessible compact computer. ElBraille – a computer docking station for your Focus 14 Blue Braille Display.

JAWS provides the best screen reader experience with either Eloquence speech output or the highly responsive and life-like Vocalizer Expressive Compact voices as well as full Braille output. Type text into documents or perform JAWS and Windows® commands right from the Braille display’s keyboard using the JAWS BrailleIn® feature. Run any Windows application such as Microsoft Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint®, or Outlook®. Use FSReader to read DAISY books from sources such as Bookshare.org or browse the internet with Microsoft Internet Explorer® or Mozilla® Firefox. ElBraille also includes a set of specially designed apps for performing popular actions such as the creation of voice or text notes, listening to audio content, and more.

The ElNotes application developed by Elita Group is designed to create, store, and manage text and voice notes on the ElBraille Notetaker. ElNotes allows a user to quickly create text and voice notes using a set of special keystrokes and then export them to TXT or MP3 files respectively, if needed. These files are saved to a user-specified folder and then are available to be read and listened to using other ElBraille applications.

Save by upgrading your current investment – Compatible with your existing Focus 14 Blue Braille Display and your existing JAWS license.
