Smart Beetle is a 14-cell Braille display that connects the world to you through all of your mobile devices and personal computer systems. It's so light and portable that you will take it to school, work, and on vacation.
The Smart Beetle has hassle-free simultaneous pairing of up to 6 devices (5 Bluetooth and 1 USB) to connect to your phone, tablet, work computer, home computer and more.
Smart Beetle connects as a Braille terminal with screen readers including JAWS, Window-Eyes, SuperNova, System Access, Voice-Over for Mac and iOS, BrailleBack for Android, Mobile Speak, and TALKS. Utilizing Braille and speech together gives you even more options to navigate various document types and formats.
The Smart Beetle's Perkins-style keyboard emulates all the functions of a QWERTY keyboard. This eliminates translation issues with mobile devices and prevents the sluggish response experienced with other Braille displays and mobile devices.
