The new way to Braille is to Jot a Dot - a portable brailling device for everyone!

Until now, the choice has been either a slate and stylus or a standard Braille Writer (such as the Perkins Brailler). Jot a Dot gives you the best of both worlds, combining portability with functionality.

Jot a Dot is the answer people who write Braille have been waiting for.

So next time you need to "just braille it" remember - Jot a Dot!
