@NFB15 Audio: Braille's Best Friends, Cosmo and BERT from E-Brailler


Embossers can be loud. However even on the exhibit hall florr, they can't always be heard over the buzz of the attendees. So David Pillischer and joe found a quiet spot to demonstrate the quiet keyboard of the Cosmo for Braille input as well as its incredibly quiet embossing. David, with the help of Karen Navy from a remote location, demonstrates how the remote braille training program, BERT, works and explains a number of scenarios where the software could be beneficial. Learn more about the Cosmo E-Brailler and the companion BERT software by visiting the E-Brailler website.
