QBraille XL Braille Display – A new take on the braille display!

All-New. Powerful. Easy. Durable. HIMS refreshable braille devices are designed to perform in the most challenging environments, including yours.
QBraille XL Braille Display represents an entirely new type of 40-cell Braille display. The QBraille XL replaces the need for special keystrokes with the intuitively placed function keys found on all QWERTY keyboards. With the QBraille XL, closing an application means simply pressing the dedicated and familiar Alt+F4 buttons.

More Features

Intuitive Productivity

QBraille XL represents an entirely new type of Braille display, with all of the best features from our Braille EDGE and Smart Beetle, combined with a full set of “real” QWERTY controls. The groundbreaking combination of Braille and function keys means you no longer need your laptop keyboard, letting you get more done in less time. Use QBraille XL’s arrow keys to navigate across tables, or use the dedicated control, shift, and arrow keys to quickly select text. QBraille XL save seconds with every command, minutes with every task, and hours with every project.

Compact Versatility

QBraille XL makes it easier than ever to multi-task like a pro. Quickly switch between Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices for sending emails, performing Google searches, sending a text, or using your favorite app all without lifting your hands. QBraille XL also includes the standard on-board applications you know and love, and offers 6 Bluetooth channels and 1 USB connection.


40-Cell Braille Display

HIMS is known for building braille devices with incredible build quality, and the QBraille XL is no different. With 40 cells and superior craftmanship, the QBraille XL can be your next favorite braille display.

Intuitive Hybrid Keyboard

The QBraille XL keyboard includes the Perkins style keyboard you know and love, as well as all of the QWERTY system and function keys that make using your computer easy.

Only the QBraille XL lets you use standard keyboard commands with a Perkins keyboard. Want to bold some text? Press Control and B. Want to close an application? Press Alt and F4.
