TACTIS100 is 100 cells braille display. It is the first text braille display from Tactisplay Corp. It has 100 cells but overall length is shorter than typical 40 cell braille display because 100 cells are divided to 4 lines of 25 cells. This display also based on our scanning technology.
Check FAQ for scanning actuator structure. Because of this, it has fewer parts, which means increased durability, reduced weight, reduced power consumption, reduced material cost. And low price tag lower than any 40 cells braille display.

Left/right edge of the display area contains line position marks. Top/bottom edge contains 5 cells interval marks. There is no cursor key for each braille cell, but you can enjoy reading by direction keys on left and right of display area.

Page refresh time is 5 seconds or less.
