Braille embossers emboss information onto specialized heavyweight paper that they receive from computers, braille notetakers, mobile devices, or flash drives. Braille embossers can emboss single-sided or double-sided (called interpoint), and can produce 6- or 8-dot braille. Speed of printing, line width, and weight of braille paper are all differentiating factors for embossers. Some Embossers may also produce Tactile images , some may also produce ink and braille information at the same time.
