The Tiger Cub Desktop Embosser is a braille printer and tactile graphics embosser designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. This embosser can be used for braille production, tactile graphics, braille math with graphics, braille adhesive labels, and braille business cards, and it can emboss braille and graphics together on standard braille paper. Braille can be printed directly from mainstream Windows software like Microsoft Office, or from braille-making software like Duxbury or Megadots. Braille is embossed at speeds up to 50 characters per second on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, and graphics are embossed at 20 dots per inch (dpi) resolution, with automatic conversion of shaded and colored images to 3-D tactile graphics. The user can select from fonts including computer braille and DotsPlus braille, and print pages in portrait or landscape mode. The embosser uses a tractor feeder (included) or stack feeder, printing on paper up to 50 inches long and from four to 9.5 inches wide, with thicknesses ranging from very thin (copier type) to heavy cardstock or plastic. The printer comes with parallel and serial ports. OPTIONS: Stack paper feeder. COMPATIBILITY: For use with IBM and compatible computers.
