Music, maths, tables, diagrams & literature

Canute 360 is ideal for use at home, the classroom or the office.

Literature, musical notation, charts, graphs, mathematics, tables and spacial diagrams. All these are hugely more practical on a nine-line refreshable Braille display than a single line display, ream of embossed paper or through text-to-speech.

For schools and educational institutions Canute can drastically increase availability of Braille material. It reads all pre-formatted Braille Ready Files (BRF) and Portable Embosser Files (PEF), meaning you can read texts from Bookshare, the RNIB Library or any other Braille library in the world. Using transcription software such as Duxbury DBT or Braille Blaster any digital text file can be transfered to and read on Canute.

The Canute’s ‘hard’ signage quality Braille makes Canute ideal for beginners and young children learning Braille.
