Internal intelligence

The Brailliant BI14 was designed to be as user-friendly as it is intelligent. A simple switch on the back of the device lets you know whether you’re using the Brailliant’s internal applications or if you have the device set to control other paired devices such as your iOS device.

Brailliant BI 14 fans share their thoughts with us…

“I love this device! I highly recommend this device to anyone that is in the market for a display that is compact and portable. The native notes app is great for people that want to take notes. Connecting to a third-party device to use the Brailliant as a braille display has never been easier. Plus, you can’t beat that price.” -Jose, Florida

“I am delighted with the Brailliant BI 14. It is now my go-to Braille device. As long as I have my iPhone and my BI 14, which I can always carry since it fits easily into my bag, I feel confident that I can do any texting, emailing, or quick document reviewing from wherever I am. It’s light, compact, simple and intuitive to use, and I love the ability to quickly and easily sync the notes I take with it to my Gmail account. I like the device so much that I find myself using Braille more often than I used to, which is a good thing. It’s a great device and I look forward to continued improvements that will make it even better.” -Chris, Maryland

“The BI 14 is simple to use and easy to learn. I like the shape of the device, slim enough to fit in a pocket.”  -Sofian, France
