Vendors of Braille Embossers

This is a list of makers of braille embossers. To make braille from a computer you need a computer system, an embosser, and braille translation software.

Since many embossers sell in the $3,000-$4,000 range, we have termed these as "mid-range". Anything under $3,000 is described as "inexpensive". Anything over $4,000 is termed "professional". Now I know that there is a great deal of difference between $5,000 and $80,000, but we hope that this list still proves useful.

By the way, a good source for continuous form braille paper for embossers is Continuous Card Systems
