The Braillephone is a portable braille telephone device designed for use by individuals who are deaf blind. This device can be used for telephone communication or it can be used for face-to-face communication between a person who is deaf blind and any other person using a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) or deaf relay service. In addition, the system is designed to enable those who are deaf blind to access most computer systems running DOS- or Windows-based software, as well as Internet communications. This device features a 23-cell, 8-dot refreshable braille display that can show computer characters and capitalization without losing spacing. It also has three status cells to monitor the location of the moveable braille windows when in computer mode, enabling the user to maintain screen perspective. Other features include a 25,000-character memory, a keyboard that the user can elect to use as a full qwerty keyboard or as a braille keyboard, a 20-character visual display, and a plug-in palm-sized vibrating data detector that indicates phone ringing. A padded nylon carrying case is included. POWER: Uses a rechargeable battery system (included). WEIGHT: 8 pounds. WARRANTY: One year warranty against defects in parts and workmanship.
