The Ohtsuki Printer is a dual braille / print printing system capable of producing parallel lines of braille and standard ink print for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The user sends the printer a grade 1 or grade 2 braille file via a computer's serial or parallel port, and the printer can print only standard ink print (dot matrix), only braille, or both types on alternate lines. The speed of printing is slightly lower when both types are used. Grade 2 braille can also be printed, but only if the user has the necessary translation software on the computer. Either single sheet paper or continuous feed paper may be used. The manufacturer is able to provide the necessary brailling paper and the ink cartridges for ink printing. Contact them about the cost. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple II and IBM PC computers. DIMENSIONS (WxHxD): 20.5 x 6.8 x 10.6 inches. WEIGHT: 24 pounds.
