Braille Embosser Now Available For Use at the Mesa Public Library

Post Date:09/08/2015 10:30 AM
The City of Mesa is happy to announce the arrival of a new Braille Embosser available for use at the Mesa Public Library Main Branch located at 64 E. First St.

A Braille Embosser can take word text, translate it into Braille, and then emboss it on to paper. It can also copy certain text documents. This is a useful tool for those who are visually impaired and require important documents to be readable.

“We also hope that it can be a resource for schools and businesses to be able to provide usable material to those that may have students, colleagues, or customers who are visually impaired,” Mesa Diversity Director, Ruth Giese said.

The embosser can emboss up to 100 characters per second, has USB and Ethernet access ports, makes copies, and does double sided printing.

The City of Mesa is pleased to offer this free service to the community and to be taking more active steps toward providing services to those individuals that may have special ADA needs. Please visit the library customer service desk at the library to request it. For library hours visit: http://www.mesalibrary.org.

For more information regarding the Braille embosser, please contact Bethany Freeland with the City of Mesa Diversity office at (480) 644-5432 or diversity.info@mesaaz.gov.
