Perkin is a braille translation program designed for use as a braille writer accessory by individuals who are blind or have low vision. Used in conjunction with a modified Perkins Brailler (see separate entry), it allows the Perkins to be used to input text to a personal computer (PC) or laptop. A circuit board is fitted within the Perkins which is then connected via the serial port to the computer. The user writes in braille on the Perkins and keeps a braille hard copy. The text appears in print on the screen and can be saved or edited at a later date.
