The ElBraille is a portable Braille computer designed for individuals who are blind or deaf-blind who want to stay connected at school, work, home, or on the go.  According to Freedom Scientific's description, "ElBraille combines the power and flexibility of a modern mainstream computer running the Windows 10 operating system with JAWS and a Braille display with a full Braille keyboard to offer a fully accessible compact computer."

  • Runs Microsoft 10
  • 14 refreshable Braille cells, an 8-dot Perkins-style Braille keyboard
  • 160 GB of internal memory
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Runs approximately 17 to 20 hours on battery
