Perkins SMART Brailler


The SMART Brailler is the long-awaited evolution of the Perkins Brailler® from a low-technology, beloved classic to a high-technology learning and teaching tool. Developed by Perkins Products and PDT (Product Development Technologies) with support from the American Printing House for the Blind, the SMART Brailler opens the door to a new, more intuitive way for individuals, both sighted and blind, to communicate, teach and learn braille together. Now teachers in a mainstream classroom can see what their students are brailling. Sighted parents can help their visually impaired children with homework. And students can take the lead in their own braille education. Sighted or blind, we can all share the learning experience!

Teacher, parent and child-tested technology lets you connect using a digital screen and audio output. Now Everyone can share the learning experience.
