Index Everest-D V5

* Index Braille

The Index Everest-D V5 is the most versatile Braille embosser available, embossing Braille in any format on cut-sheet paper. That means no more tractor-fed paper to separate and it also means that you can buy much cheaper paper from just about any office supply store.

  • Embosses up to 400 pages per hour 
  • High resolution tactile graphics
  • Automatic booklet format printing
  • Horizontal and vertical printing options

Booklet Format

The Everest-D V5 supports booklet format (saddle-stitch binding). This printing mode enables users to easily produce braille books and other lengthier documents using cut-sheet paper.

When printing in booklet format, the printer is loaded with 11" x 17" size paper (or Tabloid) and embosses vertically (or sideways) on the page in Letter size pages with a folding line down the centre of the paper. Each Braille page is automatically embossed in page order, once the document is completed, users simply must fold along the folding line. It's that easy, done automatically.

An enjoyable user interface

The control panel is a local user interface which allows the user to interact with the braille embosser and provides complete embosser control.

Even better, braille quality

The V5 solenoids (hammers) offer even better braille dot quality, a longer life cycle, higher embossing speed and lower power consumption.

idB : Index-direct-Braille

idB is a direct braille printing application built in the V5 braille embosser. It is available free of charge and compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux computers. 

Affordable price

Full of truly useful features and endless braille embossing opportunities, Index V5 braille embossers  still maintain the most affordable braille printer price comparatively.

USB host port

Connect a USB memory stick directly to any Index V5 braille embosser via USB host port to directly print braille documents or backup and restore embosser settings.

Acapela synthetic speech

In V5 embossers the speech feed back is generated by Acapela synthetic speech. This enables easy feed back when controlling the embosser user interface.
