Alva BC680

State-of-the-art Braille

The ALVA BC680 is like having two Braille displays in one device. It’s the only 80-cell Braille display that offers simultaneous connectivity with two PCs/Macs. Or you can connect one PC/Mac and a Smartphone for the ultimate in flexibility and usefulness. Imagine, while working in Excel, you’re monitoring your Smartphone for messages, all in real-time. The ALVA BC680 connects one device via USB and the other by wireless Bluetooth®. The innovative “split-point” feature allows you to divide the Braille array into a pair of separate Braille displays with two complete sets of thumb navigation keys and “smartpad” buttons. For optimum functionality, you can allocate the 80 cells however you wish; for example, 70 cells for Excel and 10 cells for the Smartphone. With that configuration you have a full Braille array for Excel and just the right number of cells to reviewing the caller ID when the phone rings.

State-of-the-art Size

The ALVA BC680 is the smallest 80-cell Braille display. The slim design means that there is no need to leave it in one place. You're free to roam with your ALVA BC680 whether you're at work, school or at home.

State-of-the-art Enjoyment

The minute you place your hands on the ALVA BC680 you'll notice the highest resolution Braille cells available today. Sharp, crisp Braille like you've never seen before. Combined with a sleek size, multiple control buttons, Bluetooth, wrapped in a high-tech metallic case that’s accented with ALVA purple markings, and you’ve got pure enjoyment.
