ViewPlus Adds HP Inkjet Printing to Braille Documents

CORVALLIS, Ore. - ViewPlus Technologies, Inc. announced the release of the
Pro Ink Attachment (PIA) Solution for adding ink print to Braille text and
tactile graphic documents. ViewPlus worked with Hewlett-Packard Specialty
Printing Systems to incorporate HP Inkjet into their professional series
Braille printers.

Braille documents can now be shared with sighted colleagues and teachers -
even with friends and family. The PIA prints the corresponding ink
characters above or alongside the Braille embossing. The PIA also allows for
images to be embossed and printed. Anything that appears on the computer
screen can quickly be made into a raised, printed image on paper.

Attaching the PIA instantly transforms the fast, robust ViewPlus Pro Braille
printer into a high-speed embossing printer, creating the only compact
integrated solution for high volume Braille and ink production. The PIA is
the only embossing printer capable of double-sided Braille and ink printing
thus saving paper costs in production.

"Braille readers often have difficulty communicating with sighted people at
work and in the classroom," says Jeff Gardner, ViewPlus Vice President,
Sales & Marketing. "Combining HP Inkjet with the ViewPlus Pro Embosser means
Braille documents can now be shared with anyone."

"It is exciting and satisfying to be able to extend the value of any
Hewlett-Packard solutions in supporting new users such as the visually
impaired users segment," says Clay Higgins, Hewlett-Packard Director, Sales
and Marketing.

Pro Ink Attachment comes with software to translate text to Braille in MS
Word and Excel, and unlike other Braille printers, the Pro with PIA is quiet
so it can be used in a normal office environment. The PIA is now available
for purchase. Please call your local ViewPlus dealer, or contact ViewPlus
directly (
, 541.754.4002) for more details.
