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 will accommodate 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
Handy Tech’s HTCom
communications software effortlessly translates between
contracted and uncontracted braille.

Lease to Own Option Now available for Adaptive Technology solutions costing over $1,700
I want to thank Triumph Technology for working with me on getting a Braille display
on a lease to own program. I would not have otherwise been able to afford this device.
I would encourage everybody to at least give this plan a look. I have downloaded
books from NLS and Bookshare
and absolutely love it! Dwayne McNutt, Hiltons, VA
For years customers have been asking for the ability to make payments on assistive technology hardware purchased from Triumph Technology, such as braille
displays, OCR and video magnification systems. Previously, this was not possible for us to offer such a payment plan for a variety of reasons; however,
Triumph Technology is happy to announce that we are now able to offer products on the lease to own basis.
For the first time in Triumph Technology’s 8 years in business, technology that once seemed unattainable can now be purchased on a lease to own payment plan for qualified customers.
Here is how it works:
- Customer contacts Triumph Technology at 651-636-5184
- The product or products being considered for purchase are identified and the cost is established.
- Triumph Technology then gets the consumer in touch with the leasing company who takes an application over the phone; The approval or denial of an application is at the discretion of the leasing company.
- If accepted, the leasing company works with the customer to explain the terms of the lease and complete the verification process.
Here are the two leasing options currently available through Triumph Technology:
- 1. 24 month buyout: The length of the lease is 21 months and the last 3 months payments made either monthly or in a lump sum constitutes the buyout.
- 2. Baker’s Dozen: A down payment is determined and made based on customer credit rating, the remaining amount is paid over a 12 month term and the 13
month payment constitutes the buyout.
- 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
In either case, you have the option of either letting the equipment go back to the leasing company at the end of the contract or owning it.
Note that there is an unavoidable $250 document fee rolled into each of the above options which is added to and spread out over the term of the lease.
We realize that this type of arrangement isn’t for everybody, but for many people, acquiring assistive technology products they thought they could never afford just got much easier.

iRead 220.127.116.11 released
iRead version 18.104.22.168 is now available at:
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 our experiences with the different HoverCam models have been excellent.
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, like the HoverCam.
Another feature implemented in version 22.214.171.124 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.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact Triumph Technology by calling:
