Braille Display Processor - ACT (Audio Cursor Tracking) is a device that displays the characters that appear on a computer monitor as braille characters on a refreshable braille display. A 20-character " window" can be moved around the screen, and the characters in that window appear on the Braille Display Processor's display. Various keys are provided for directing the movement of the window. In the "cursor" mode, the braille display indicates the location of the cursor by row and column. In the "read" mode, text is displayed on the braille display. The cursor itself may be displayed as the 20th character during editing. Audio "beeping" alerts the user to cursor position. The system consists of an external unit with display and control keys and a circuit card that fits in any expansion slot in the computer. Braille Display Processor does not require additional software to operate, and does not affect the operation of most standard software running simultaneously. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple II, IBM PC, and IBM PS/2 Models 25/30 computers.
