Active Star


Yes its true, a new star is born among braille displays and
it is called the Active Star!  Those of you,
who may remember the BrailleStar 40, imagine a sleeker and lighter weight
40 cell braille display with the same ergonomic concave braille cells, triple action keys and
slide tray that accommodates most laptop or tablet computers.  Now ad a lithium ion battery that will give
you up to 40 hours battery life per charge, a magnetic qwerty keyboard that
attaches firmly to the top of the unit which you can use for note taking or to
control your computer or device of choice on multiple platforms, a compartment
under the tray designed to hold a smart phone, stereo speakers and a 16 voice
polyphonic FM synthesizer with real musical instrument sounds. 


Handy Tech’s own patented Active Tactile control (ATC)
technology not only makes it possible to read books from beginning to end
without the need to press buttons, but also promotes music braille literacy
using real instrument sounds which are triggered while reading the score that
you are in the process of learning or share the song that you composed on the
Active Star yourself. 


Braille teachers enjoy the instructional tools that allow
them to play back their students reading sessions in real time, or generate
spreadsheets that demonstrate measurable progress and provide statistics with
regard to reading behaviors.  Active Star
also comes with games that make learning braille engaging and fun.


Support for the mainstream Mass storage protocol makes it
possible to fly files back and forth between the active Star and your
computer.  Handy Tech’s HTCom
communications software makes it easy to effortlessly translate between
contracted and uncontracted braille.

iRead Image Capture and Read

iRead version is now available at:

Direct iRead download

The new image page tab makes it easy to archive those important documents and email them in common image formats.

The multi camera support is the most vital enhancement of this latest iRead version. So far

The automatic turn-of-a-page-detection was previously only possible with the Syeye camera. By extending the iRead we have changed this. Now the turn-of-a-page-detection
works with other cameras offering a webcam interface,

Another feature implemented in version is the detection of duplicates. Now, even if the position of the text to be recognized was changed slightly, the program will recognize a page that was scanned before and discard the duplicate scan. This is especially helpful with scanning a book from start to finish.

  • Full page scanning means fantastic braille tracking which is especially important for people who are deaf and blind
  • Enjoy the ability to bring up a list of pages or headers and quickly move to the desired section of a document by pressing the enter key on the desired page or header.
  • Check the orientation of the last page scanned with a keystroke.
  • Quickly scan large bodies of text and process them later
  • As always, please don’t hesitate to contact Triumph Technology by calling:
