Braille Printers

Braille printers receive data from computer devices and emboss that information in braille onto paper through the use of solenoids that control embossing pins. Braille printers typically print on heavyweight paper and use up more pages for the same amount of information than pages printed on a regular printer. They are also slower and noisier. Interpoint printers are braille printers that emboss braille on both sides of a page. The price of a braille printer is directly related to the volume of braille it produces. Small-volume braille printers cost between $1,800 and $5,000 and large-volume ones may cost between $10,000 and $80,000.


Here are some possible questions to ask when purchasing braille printers:

  • How does the printer connect to your computer?

  • What is its embossing speed (measured in characters per second [CPS])?

  • Is the height of the braille dots adjustable?

  • Is the printer portable?

  • How loud is it? Is a soundproof case needed?

  • Does it print single-sided or double-sided?

  • Do you need a printer that can produce both print and braille?
