Improved Version 2 Based on User Feedback!
The well-loved classic Perkins Brailler® has been reimagined, retaining all the attributes that make it the most widely used braillewriter in the world. The Perkins-APH Brailler adds many new features that make it more portable and easier to use.
The Perkins-APH Brailler is designed to be quieter, lighter, and more comfortable for brailling. It includes functions that YOU asked for: a built-in eraser, a way to read the page easily while writing, a shorter keystroke requiring less force, and margin guides on the front. The Perkins-APH Brailler features a sleek design with tactile elements, environmentally-friendly materials, and is APH Blue. The brailler has an Easy-Grip handle and accommodates standard 8 1/2 inch wide paper.
