Braille printers transfer computer generated text into embossed Braille output. Braille translation programs convert text scanned in via OCRs or generated via standard word processing programs into Braille, which can be printed on the embosser. The data received from computer devices is embossed in braille onto paper through the use of solenoids that control embossing pins. Braille printers typically print on heavyweight paper and use up more pages for the same amount of information than pages printed on a regular printer. They are also slower and noisier. Interpoint printers are braille printers that emboss braille on both sides of a page. The price of a braille printer is directly related to the volume of braille it produces.
