My reliable compact companion

Actilino is the super-compact note taker for blind users. 16 piezo ceramic Braille cells and the silent Braille keyboard make the Actilino your reliable every-day companion. In real time, Actilino displays information in Braille for tactile reading. Additionally, you get the speech output of the connected computer.
With Actilino Braille readers get access to the world. You don’t need to install software: Simply type your notes with Actilino and send it to your smartphone or PC. The built-in microphone of the Actilino allows you to make calls with such programs as Skype, FaceTime, and WhatsApp.
Actilino provides unique touch recognition. Handy Tech’s patented ATC (active tactile control) technology allows using the device like the touchscreen of a tablet. ATC offers continuous reading. When reaching the end of the displayed text, it scrolls automatically to the next text position.
