Focus 40 Blue - 5th Generation
The 5th Generation of the Focus 40 Blue Braille Display is more rugged and stronger than ever. The housing is built from aluminum and steel, with added bumpers to absorb shock, and physically isolated Braille cells to create a Braille Display to meet the demands of the active user. And, like previous Focus Blue models, the 5th Generation is lightweight and compact with a user-friendly keyboard and control layout. You can have up to five Bluetooth connections so that you can easily connect to iOS and Android devices such as smartphones, iPads, and tablets. You can also use the Perkins-style keyboard for effortless Braille text input to control your computer. When you combine the Focus 40 Blue with JAWS, you have the ultimate speech and Braille access to your computer. The new Scratchpad feature lets you take notes and read books even when you aren’t connected.
