VarioUltra 20/40 Braille Display & Notetaker


VarioUltra is the mobile Braille device that will change the way you think about refreshable Braille technology. Available with either 20 or 40 Braille cells, VarioUltra is quite possibly the most beautiful Braille device on the planet.

* VarioUltra 20 and VarioUltra 40 are currently unavailable. 


VarioUltra is the smartest Braille device on the planet.

Simply put, the ergonomic design of VarioUltra is beyond anything else you have seen or heard about. From the beautiful brushed aluminum housing, to the incredibly quiet and responsive Braille keyboard, to the crisp Braille cells that feel almost paper-like, VarioUltra is an experience to be enjoyed every day.

Here are some things we believe are important:

  1. VarioUltra was the first Braille display to support simultaneous connections with multiple devices.
  2. The beautiful brushed aluminum design makes VarioUltra the lightest braille device in its class.
  3. The ergonomic braille keyboard is extremely quiet, and comfortable to type on.
  4. The Braille Notetaker apps include favorites such as a word processor, and PDF and Excel viewers.
  5. The superior quality of the Braille cells feels great.
  6. We service and support VarioUltra right here in the USA. Toll-free support and a full 2-year warranty.
  7. Made in Germany. VarioUltra is a premium quality product that you will love.

    I love my Varioultra. Lovely Braille, comfortable to type on. Basic notetaking plus pairing to multiple devices. (Review via Twitter)

  2. 5 out of 5

    I’m typing this on my recently delivered VarioUltra. A friend loaned me a different display while I was waiting. Having VarioUltra is like going from a bare-bones car with no features, to one with all of these great bells and whistles.
