Pronto! 40 with QWERTY keyboard at the workplace

Pronto! 40 V4 features interchangeable braille and standard (QWERTY) keyboards

Pronto! 40 V4 offers two methods for inputting: "My organizer must be powerful. I need a braille keyboard and a 40-cell braille display at school, whereas in my spare time I would prefer a standard (QWERTY) keyboard because I can chat faster that way. Also I don't want to lug around too many devices. Ideally I want an organizer that I can also use like a netbook - I would then be able to leave my laptop at home."

The 40-cell braille display is an integral part of the device and fitted with cursor routing. The internal memory of 32 GB Flash is expanded by a SDHC-card of 4 GB included in the package. The built-in long-life Lithium-ion battery only requires recharging after 20 hours of use. Furthermore, Pronto's silver metallic spray-painted aluminum housing gives it an exclusive and elegant appearance.

The integrated 40-cell braille display of Pronto! 40 can be used also as a normal refreshable braille display with your PC, laptop, iPad or iPhone. Pronto! 40 V4 features BAUM's legendary simultaneous device connectivity. Thanks to a USB and four Bluetooth connections, you can connect Pronto! to all of your devices, and remain connected to them. A command on Pronto! lets you switch from one device to the next, and back again. This means it is possible to switch quickly from your notebook to your smartphone to rapidly type an SMS, and then switch back to your computer to resume your work.



You can switch the input between Braille and a standard (QWERTY) keyboard simply by exchanging the keyboard module while the device is running.
The powerful Pronto! 40 is suitable for use at work, at school for training and at home.
The 40-cell Braille display is built into the organizer.
The optional visual display shows the content of the Braille display; this is useful for training purposes or communication with deaf and blind people.
