Enjoy the Ergonomics
The Braille input keys are placed in that way that you can enter text in a convenient position: The control stick, located in the front center, can be comfortably reached with the thumbs. The detection of the reading position enables relaxed reading without the need to continuously press the scrolling keys. The unique concave Handy Tech Braille cells of Actilino allow reading Braille in a relaxed ergonomic reading position.
Did you know the Actilino Smart Braille Display by Handy Tech can log your student’s reading speed and progress even when both of you are working from home?
Sensors under each braille pin detect changes in finger pressure as well as reading speed and position. Switching on the reading log function allows for recording of a student’s reading session. This valuable data can be saved and exported to a spreadsheet for documenting reading behaviors over an entire semester or year, providing concrete data for measuring reading progress against benchmark goals in your student’s IEP. This is great both for showing positive progress and for identifying problem areas that may call for further instruction.
