Working with OBR

Working with OBR

Easy operation

The scanning process is simple and quick, you can process two sides of a Braille sheet in a single scan. Pressing the SCAN button starts the process of scanning. After less than thirty seconds the information is presented at the screen. Continue to scan the next page or start to use the information.

Processing Braille documents with OBR

The Braille information in a small letter or a complete Braille Book can be retrieved into computer form in the same easy way, even if you do not read Braille at all.

The scanning and decoding of an A4 page will normally take about one minute. You can select scan single or double sided sheets, a single page or several pages and different Braille cell sizes. If the Braille document has been placed in a faulty direction at the scanner it can be corrected with a SWAP and ROTATE command without re-scanning the document.

Copy old Braille Books

The recognition function of OBR is stable, even if the source Braille document is of low quality. In combination with spell checking and other Windows functions, almost all Braille document can easily be retrieved into computer format.

The OBR Software can be used with any type of Index Braille Embosser for direct embossing of a scanned document. Independent of language or type of Braille code, the copy will be embossed without the involvement of any translation program.

Scan wide Braille pages

A normal Braille page of 29 lines, 42 characters is too large for a A4 scanner. It, and even wider pages, can still be scanned by the MERGE function at the OBR.

Merging two pages together

Start with scanning of a part of the large page, continue with the rest of the page. The merge function will map automatically this two pictures and present the whole page as one document.
