Each country has its own language and features (accents, special characters, etc). Therefore, a specific type of transcription software is required for each language and the different edition standards must also be taken into account.
Even though Braille character parameters are measured by the dimensions of fingertips, the size of the cells (height, length and spaces between dots) sometimes differs by a few millimetres. So we dedicated almost 2 years of research and development to develop the first prototypes.

You just need to enter the text in the language required, and the software automatically transcribes the information. The machine does the rest!
Gravograph's electronic system makes perforations on a flat and rigid support based on a marked out drawing. Then, stainless steel or acrylic beads are pressed into slightly larger holes to create the Braille text.
To provide more information, complete your Braille device with raised lettering.
Using the same software, your machine can cut out multi-layered material supports coloured in bulk. The letter or motif contour is cut out on the first layer, then the unnecessary material is removed, leaving the raised lettering. This technique caters for wood, metal and plastic.
These specific sheets of material are divided into three very different categories to help the visually impaired to detect them and to meet the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards in the USA.
The overall system has been designed using the recommendations of associations such as Valentin Haüy and L'INJA in France, and the Once in Spain, to ensure they are reliable and in line with the expectations of their end users.
