Maximum quantity available reached.

A first-of-its-kind keyboard and a refreshable braille display.

Mantis Q40 is a unique 2-in-1 device from Humanware and APH that holds both a Bluetooth QWERTY keyboard and a 40-cell refreshable braille display below it. Students and professionals no longer need to choose between a keyboard and a braille device – at the same time a professional or a student is typing on the Mantis, the refreshable braille below the keyboard is providing a multimodal braille complement to the screen reader, making it easier to participate in, and succeed at school or at work.
