Product Review of SMART Brailler

AFB Access World

Janet Ingber reviews the Perkins SMART Brailler in the July 2014 issue of AFB AccessWorld Magazine.  She provides an overview of the basic features, including the audio and visual feedback, and the USB port that allows files to be downloaded and shared on a computer.  She includes the following information:

  • What's in the Box
  • Layout
  • Getting Help
  • Using the SMART Brailler
  • Settings Menu
  • Creating and Saving a File
  • Building on Patterns

Ingber concludes:  "The Perkins SMART Brailler is an excellent learning tool, allowing blind and sighted users the opportunity to work and learn together. The machine is relatively easy to use, with documentation online and via the onboard audio tour."
