Tradition and Innovation
With a 32 cell Braille display and a 9-key Perkins-style keyboard with the addition of Control, Alt and function Keys, the BrailleSense 6 looks and feels like a traditional notetaker. However, its competitive modern hardware and connectivity, along with direct access to Android applications, ensure it stacks up solidly against modern off-the-shelf phones and tablets.

The Most efficient Electronic Braille Math tool
The BrailleSense 6 notetaker offers the most intuitive and automatic interface for electronic Braille math, via UEB, Nemeth, or computer Braille, including equation creation and editing in the Word Processor, and scientific and graphics calculators.
