We now have Braille eReaders available for our patrons who wish to use one! You do not need to currently be receiving braille from us to check out a Braille eReader. For those of you who decide to borrow one, here is what you can expect to receive: 

  • Getting Started Guide and Full Instruction Manual 
  • Braille eReader 
  • Sample eBraille Cartridge 
  • Carrying Case 
  • Carrying Lanyard 
  • Cartridge Connector Cord 
  • Power Cord and Power Adapter

To familiarize yourself with the new Braille eReader, we recommend reading the Getting Started Guide included in the box. It provides essential information to help you make the most of your device. 

Sample eBraille Cartridge

Your kit includes a sample eBraille cartridge with twenty preselected books from our collection. To access these books, follow these simple steps: Use the provided cartridge connector cable to connect the cartridge to the eReader's USB-A port. The books will automatically load onto your eReader. This cartridge is yours to keep as long as you are using our services.

Transition to eBraille

Currently, our system is optimized for either embossed or eBraille, but not both simultaneously. We will not be able to deliver additional eBraille books to you until you have decided to switch from embossed Braille. Should you decide to transition to eBraille, we'll start sending books on cartridges like the sample one. Load these books onto your eReader, and return the cartridges to us – no need to hold onto them as the books are stored on your device. We're here to support you throughout this transition. If you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out to us by calling 1-888-388-2460 or emailing ncabls@dncr.nc.gov. Happy reading!
