Hardware Overview: Juliet Pro 60 Braille Printer

Picture of Braille Printer
Braille embossers are a quick and efficient way to produce lengthy Braille documents. At the ATAC, we use the Juliet Pro 60, which weighs about 52 pounds, about two and a half feet wide, and 11.5 inches deep. It can emboss 55 characters per second doing double-sided Braille (about 40 characters per second doing single-sided Braille). It will emboss single-sheet or tractor-fed paper of variable paper weight and size.

The Juliet Pro 60 is also equipped with ET-Speaks, a speech synthesizer. It can be operated from the keypad on the machine itself or from the keyboard on your PC. The keypad keys on the Juliet emit telephone-style tones when sequences are pressed, which is helpful for someone who is blind. It is a fairly noisy piece of equipment, up to 68 DBA, but you can order sound enclosures to block out a lot of the noise. Our Braille embosser is housed in a special sound-reducing booth that reduces printer noise by 90 percent.
