For years; the Basic-D V5 Braille Embosser has been the most sold braille embosser in the world. It uses fan-folded paper to produce single or double-sided braille. Basic-D V5 is a compact and powerful tractor-fed Braille printer as it has always been; but now it’s available with new modern features like Wi-fi connection, embossing from USB memory and braille printing from mobile devices.

An even better Basic-D

Though the physical appearance has not changed, the Basic-D V5 has been updated to include all the latest Braille techniques and compatibility with mainstream technology.

Region defined layouts

Select and save region specific layouts or operate using 1-9 layout options including user defined.

Horizontal & Vertical Braille printing

Emboss Braille horizontally or vertically (sideways) on the page using the Basic-D V5 Braille embosser.

Light to sharpen the design

Light is an important design component in all V5 embossers and a hallmark for its technology level. It both guides the user interface and decorates the embosser.

An enjoyable user interface

The control panel is a local user interface which allows the user to interact with the braille embosser and provides complete embosser control.

Emboss & manage from portable devices

Index Braille V5 embossers are compatible with portable devices. With the use of your portable device and Index’s own idB (free), endless braille embossing options are available directly from your smart phone, tablet or portable PC.

Even better braille quality

The V5 solenoids (hammers) offer even better braille dot quality, a longer life cycle, higher embossing speed and lower power consumption.

idB : Index-direct-Braille

idB is a direct braille printing application built in the V5 braille embosser. It is available free of charge and compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux computers.

Affordable price

Full of truly useful features and endless braille embossing opportunities, Index V5 braille embossers still maintain the most affordable braille printer price comparatively.

Acapela synthetic speech

In V5 embossers the speech feedback is generated by Acapela synthetic speech. This enables easy feedback when controlling the embosser user interface.

Remote support

Get Index Braille embosser support from anywhere in the world by simply connecting to our remote support function embedded in the V5 embosser.

Interpoint Braille

High quality Braille on both sides of the paper, known as interpoint or double-sided braille, is an Index Braille trademark.

USB host port

Connect a USB memory stick directly to any Index V5 braille embosser via USB host port to directly print braille documents or backup and restore embosser settings.
