ALVA Braille Display Delphi 480

With this 85-cell braille display and built-in speech synthesizer, a maximum of 80 characters can be represented in braille. Five additional status cells provide information on the position of the PC cursor, the position of the braille display and typography (underlining, italic, bold, etc.). The speech synthesizer can speak one or more words, an entire sentence, an entire screen or an entire text file when so desired.

The ALVA Delphi 480 has been specially developed for professional use in combination with a desktop PC using, for example, MS DOS or Windows. The Delphi 480 is thus particularly well-suited for administrative and telephone activities. Only a single parallel or serial cable is needed for operation. The three other ports can be used for additional applications such as connection to a printer or the ALVA Feelme software.

The ALVA Delphi 480 comes standard with very user-friendly MS DOS functionality for braille and speech. The braille display is also perfectly suited for combination with present-day graphic screen readers.
