If we get a reasonable margin, IE enough to cover support etc, not all
dealers, myself included, will raise the price. I am hoping to become a
dealer anyway.

Not all dealers are greedy, remember that. If I can make a living, I'm

All the best

Releasing a Braille display, in 2018, holding only 6-dots - well that seems
a bit old-fashioned, doesn't it? What really, did they have to save on two
extra dots?

OK, we have seen 6-dot computer Braille, using two characters for
representing one computer character, like the backslash, digits and certain
others, even the Captalized characters. Yet, most Braille computer users,
might agree, the 8-dots makes it much easier to cooperate with the actual
contents of the screen. Try routing to a character on the screen, or lining
up contents, when you have some of the characters represented by two cells
on the display.

I do woncder, if they have solved these issues in any other way?

Pricing seem interesting enough, except from the fact they are asking for
dealers. My thought is, that likely these dealers will raise the product
price drastically. When they first informed about the development, I
contacted them and asked if it would be sold directly to end-users, and it
seems they somehow have changed the intentions.
Shipping, Taxes and dealer's money-making - be prepared for prices
50-100 percent higher. And by then, a 6-dot display with the drawbacks
thereof, might be little interesting. You might soon enough look at other

Will be interesting to follow the product though, as we might see more
user-feedback, and on-hand experiences.

The idea, intention and release is of great interest, I think. But it
cannot be left-out, the disappointment when it only holds 6-dots. Even,
they could have run two models, 6-dot for a lower price, and 8-dots as
an alternative. Honestly, my first Braille display ever, was in '84, and
even back then 8-dots were the standard for computerized operation.
close to 35 years later, 6-dots?

Never mind Youtube, the press release quoted below states "It has a

That is quite clear.
