VarioUltra is the smartest Braille device on the planet

Simply put, the ergonomic design of VarioUltra is beyond anything else you have seen or heard about. From the beautiful brushed aluminum housing, to the incredibly quiet and responsive Braille keyboard, to the crisp Braille cells that feel almost paper-like, VarioUltra is an experience to be enjoyed every day.

Here are some things we believe are important:

  1. VarioUltra was the first Braille display to support simultaneous connections with multiple devices.
  2. The beautiful brushed aluminum design makes VarioUltra the lightest braille device in its class.
  3. The ergonomic braille keyboard is extremely quiet, and comfortable to type on.
  4. The Braille Notetaker apps include favorites such as a word processor, PDF and Excel viewers.
  5. The superior quality of the Braille cells feels great.
  6. We service and support VarioUltra right here in the UK. Free phone support and a full 2-year warranty.
  7. Made in Germany. VarioUltra is a premium quality product that you will love.
