Hands-on with the Canute Console

Sight and Sound Technology, in collaboration with Bristol Braille Technology are delighted to invite you to this drop-in event which will allow attendees to get hands-on experience with the Canute Console.

   – The Canute Console is the next generation in Braille technology. It builds upon the foundation of the Canute 360 Braille e-reader and takes it to new heights.

   – Imagine a device that combines the functionality of an e-reader with the power of a Linux workstation. That’s precisely what the Canute Console offers.

   – The Console consists of a Canute 360 Braille display docked in a workstation.


  • Multiline Braille Display. The Canute 360 Braille display remains at the heart of the Console, providing a reliable and efficient way to read Braille content.
  • Qwerty Keyboard. Pull out the Qwerty keyboard when you need to type or search. It’s perfect for professionals, students, and anyone who wants to engage with Braille in a more interactive way.
  • High Contrast Monitor. The Console features a fold-up **13-inch high contrast monitor**. Share what you’re reading with visual readers or comfortably explore Braille content.
  • Smart Mode. Switch to Smart Mode, which runs in the Linux command line. In this mode, the Console becomes a versatile tool:
    • View and manipulate data
    • Edit and write documents
    • Transcribe to and from Braille
    • Explore diagrams and maps
    • And here’s the exciting part: It’s also the world’s first and only tactile videogaming platform!
  • Reader Mode. If you prefer a traditional reading experience, use the Console in Reader Mode. Read comfortably while benefiting from the additional monitor and keyboard.

We can’t wait to see you in Bristol and show you why this is the most exciting thing to have happened to Braille in years!
