Traditionally to bind braille books, spiral or wire binding methods have been used. To create a completed braille book using this method, one must first separate the printed braille document, then perforate and align each page for the chosen binding method. This process is outdated and takes considerable time and money efforts.
With BrailleBox V5 using A3 (or 11×17 inch) paper and booklet format rather, it is naturally much easier and less time consuming as much of the manual labor is removed. BrailleBox V5 is able to emboss at speeds up to 30% faster than V4. After the pages are printed, the ready documents will pile in page order with a dotted braille line down the middle of the page, you can then fold along this braille line to have a completed braille book. After having folded the A3 size paper, each printed page will then be in A4 size. Just staple, using the Index Braille stapler, along the middle line if desired and just like that you have a braille book!
Embossing braille books in volumes
For larger documents you may choose to emboss the document into volumes, this is recommended because when braille is printed it is much thicker and bulkier than standard ink printed documents. If, for example, you are embossing a document of 110 pages, you may select each volume size to be 40 pages, the book will then be made into 3 separate volumes. Volume 1 will consist of (pages 1-40), volume 2 (pages 41-80) and volume 3 (81-110).
The braille page number and volume number is then applied automatically by the BrailleBox embosser. Typically, the page number is found in the footer; if both the page number and volume number are selected, the format will print as: page #101 v3 (for example). Volume printing is very practical for longer documents, especially if a standard file such as Word or PDF is embossed using idB (Index-direct-Braille) freeware application.
