Hi Mo, that’s the name I was trying to remember in my reply; Dymo. The metal
version were much better than those plastic whatnots of today. Paul

As far as I understand it, they are a plastic version of the metal dymo gun
which RNIB used to sell. They're OK as long as they don't jam.
Very best wishes,

There is no way i am paying over £400 for a labeller! I only need it for
labelling CDs and ingredients. I just wondered what the reizen labeller was as
only about £40.

Techno Vision sell sticky back plastic which is tractor fed. Although it's not
in label form, it's quite easy to cut it down. There's also the 6dot labeller.

I agree with you about the lack of braille labelling from the RNIB these days.
I have the original metal version of the Reizen labeller and they are / were
brilliant. It’s still going strong. But the newer plastic ones are flimsy in my
opinion, and don’t last all that long.
The tape used in the Reizen can also be used with a cheap adaptor which are
available from the RNIB on a Perkins Brailler if you have one of those?
Other than that I don’t really know of any other labellers available today. I
have been trying to source tractor-fed labels that I could use with my embosser
but haven’t yet found a supplier.

Subject: [access-uk] What are . . .
I’ve just been going through the latest RNIB Products Update where they are
promoting items for sale. I wondered what is a smart Brailler – they are
advertising tape for this and what is the Braille Labeller (Reizen RL350).
Since RNIB no longer provide the wide range of labels tat they used to, I am
having to buy sheets of foil labelling paper and cut my labels to size. If
there was a reasonably priced labeller, I’d certainly be interested and this is
currently being advertised at around £31.
