Ultra-compact Braille Wave fits in any briefcaseMove into new ways of reading
braille with Braille Wave. Braille Wave - the Braille display that's so light and
compact that it fits in any briefcase and yet still has 40 Braille cells.
Light and Elegant
Weighing just 1000 g (35 oz.), it's the incredible light weight that makes the Braille
Wave the display for mobile usage. The elegant design combines superb functionality
and dynamic shaping - and all that with such small measurements
of 360 x 120 x 35 millimeters (14,7 x 4,7 x 1,3 inches).
The Best Ergonomics
The small, compact, curved casing makes your orientation to the Braille Wave easy. 
The Braille Wave's cells are concave and follow the shape of your fingertips ideally. The
reading keys are situated to the right and left of the Braille display itself, directly where
your fingers run off the display.  With the quiet, easily used function keys, you can also make
 your notes without an external keyboard.
Easy File Transfer
HTCom, the Handy Tech communication program makes it easy to transfer files like your own
notes from the Braille Wave to the PC. After editing a text at your PC, you can use HTCom to
transfer the file onto the Braille Wave. HTCom extracts the pure text information in order to
save memory capacity. Additionally, files can be directly transferred from the Windows explorer
or from Word.
Handy and Practical
The best position for the Braille display in relation to the keyboard is gained by placing the
Braille Wave in front of the PC-keyboard or the laptop.
Place the Braille Wave on your lap and lean back.  Read, in this relaxed state, your e-mails
or whatever else awaits you!
 
Easy Extensions
 
Now it is even possible to connect an external keyboard to the Braille Wave. You
can broaden the scope with an alphanumerical keyboard, so you can make notes in the most
comfortable way for you.
Flexible Access To Computers
Braille Wave gives you access to various computer systems, for example DOS, Linux,
Windows 95/98/ME/XP/NT/2000/XP.
The integrated cursor routing keys make all of the tools available to you so you can
always find the quickest way.  For example when proof-reading a text, you can move
the cursor or mouse pointer at lightning speed to the appropriate position in the document. 
Integrated Note Taking Facility
You can use the Braille Wave as a note taker, without a PC and absolutely anywhere you want,
for 20 hours, without it being plugged in. At the computer you can swap the Braille Wave in
to note taker mode at any time.  This gives you the chance of quickly jotting down a telephone
 number without having to start a different PC program.
Optionally Wireless
With the optional Bluetooth® connection, Braille Wave can be used wireless as a Braille display
 at your PC. With a range of about 10 meters, you are free to control your PC anywhere in the room,
 for example when relaxing in your armchair. Bluetooth® technology is world standard for wireless
communication. It allows you to use the Braille Wave with a personal organizer or mobile
phone. The mobile phone still in your pocket, you can write with your Braille Wave wireless e-mails and text messages.
