Produced in conjunction with the Transforming Braille Group, of which RNIB is a member, the Orbit Reader 20 has been created for blind people and offers an easy way to read books and note-taking at an affordable price.
The Orbit Reader 20 is portable and features 20 refreshable eight-dot braille cells. It offers reading books via SD card, simple note-taking, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
As a stand-alone device, you can read content stored on an SD card. Prepare and download your pre-translated materials as brf, brl or txt files and transfer them to the SD card provided. Use any braille code, in any language and of any genre including music, maths, or your favourite book.
The Orbit Reader 20 from RNIB comes with pre-installed content, including a variety of books and a dictionary.
Use Bluetooth to connect to your Apple, Android or Kindle device and access a world of books through reading apps such as Kindle®, Adobe Digital Editions® or iBooks®. The translation into braille is performed by your device's screen reader to give you a quick braille output on your Orbit Reader 20.
