Freedom Scientific Announces New Focus 80 Blue Braille Display
Freedom Scientific announced today, a new member of their popular Focus Blue line of refreshable Braille displays. The new Focus 80 Blue is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, and is now wireless for greater flexibility of use and environment.
Saint Petersburg (I-Newswire) January 10, 2013 - Freedom Scientific, the world leader in assistive technology for those that are low vision or blind, today announced another member in the popular Focus Blue family of refreshable Braille displays.
The sleek new Focus 80 Blue is one third the volume and forty percent lighter than the previous Focus 80 display but packs even bigger features, including Bluetooth® and a highly refined keyboard design.
"Eighty Braille cells is long enough to give you an appreciation of the way a document is laid out, which can really help you produce a well-formatted document," says Jonathan Mosen, Freedom Scientific's Vice President of Blindness Hardware Product Management. "It's also long enough to reflect the layout of your computer screen when you are working with database applications such as in a call center. This is a device any Braille reader will love to have on their desk."
Focus 80 Blue features both Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and is fully compatible with JAWS® BrailleIn™ providing Contracted Braille input in many Windows applications. It is also compatible with the full range of iOS 6 devices, so you can access your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch via Bluetooth. You have keyboard navigation throughout the Home screen and apps, and you can type and read in Contracted Braille or Computer Braille.
The new Focus 80 Blue is priced at $7,795 with a two-year warranty and will be available in February. For full details of the entire Focus Blue family, including the Focus 40 Blue and the Focus 14 Blue, the perfect companion to mobile devices, visit the Freedom Scientific website at www.freedomscientific.com.
