Index Embossers Join the Windows 10 Party; Includes Legacy V3 Embosser Support


Screen reading companies aren't the only assistive technology vendors needing to update their products to support Windows 10. Index Braille has released version 8.10 of their embosser drivers which includes Windows 10 support among other improvements. The drivers work for current generation V4 and previous generation V3 embossers, providing Windows 10 support for embossers more than 10 years old. The list of features from the Index website is included below.

The latest version of the Index Braille printer driver contains fixes for Windows 8/10 and supports both 32 Bit and 64 Bit versions.

Index printer drivers are available for both Windows and Mac. All Index embossers need printer drivers in order to function correctly. The Index printer drivers may be used with commercial braille editors and tactile graphics programs.

Support for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 (32 Bit and 64 Bit) and Windows 10 (32 Bit and 64 Bit)

The printer driver support Index embossers generation V4 and V3.

This version suppresses unsupported BiDi-requests, which fixes a problem on Windows 8.x where the printer prints garbage each time the printer is connected to the computer.

Changes to 8.1.0

Bi-directional support disabled

Due to stability issues in Windows 8.x, bi-directional support has been disabled in this release. If you require bi-directional support, please contact the Index Braille support.

Index-direct-Braille is included

Index-direct-Braille is automatically installed with the driver. If you require an installer without Index-direct-Braille, please contact Index Braille support.

MSI-based installer

The installer for this driver is now based on MSI. This should alleviate most of the problems of previous installers. If you require the specific MSI- files, e.g. if you need to perform silent/automatic installs on a domain, please contact Index Braille support.
