MessageI remember that embosser when I was young at school. It liked to lock up 
at times and could take several repowering cycles to get it to accept from the 
braille 'n speak.

  Maria, I have used the Braille Blazer as well.  I haven't done a market check 
lately, but at the time we looked at Trace, it was about as inexpensive as you 
could get.  However, the problem we had with it was that because it pushes the 
paper out rather than pulling it from the front, the paper would often jam.  
Perhaps they have redesigned it in the last several years, but at least those 
were our problems with it.  I seem to recall that there was some way to have it 
pull the paper rather than push it, but I don't remember enough to be accurate 
about that even if it exists.

    Hello, Maria:
    One suggestion is the Braille Blazer, made by Freedom Scientific. It is 
small and quite lightweight, considering that it is  an embosser.
    However, I have had a few problems with mine, however, when I get it to 
work properly, it's a good machine. Best of luck,

      Hi Friends,

      I have a question for all of you, but especially for those of you who are 
acquainted with braille embossers.  For some time I have been considering 
purchasing a braille embosser for home use.  At first I just thought I'd use it 
for brailling lyrics, lists, notes, etc.  Then I thought perhaps I could 
contact restaurants and brail some menus for them as well.  Heck, I could even 
produce some of Mary's braille cards for next Christmas.  Therefore, I would 
like something sturdy enough for frequent use, but not overly large, as space 
is a big consideration.  

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
