Quantum Technology has created a website devoted solely to the Mountbatten Braille Writer and braille literacy. The Mountbatten is recognized around the world as a tool for helping young children achieve braille literacy and the technical literacy they will need to compete in our increasingly electronic world. This site contains a world of information and resources for parents and educators, as well as stories from people who currently use the Mountbatten.
The site contains links to research work undertaken using the Mountbatten at SET-BC in Canada and at the Texas School for the Blind, copies of papers and presentations, links to sources of curriculum materials, information that may help in fundraising and much more.
You can visit the site by clicking this link: http://www.mountbattenbrailler.com and they welcome your stories and ideas.
Based in Sydney Australia, Quantum Technology has developed a wide range of assistive technology tools over the last 30 years. One of their foundation products
was the Braille-n-Print which helped usher in the age of integrated education by providing a means of translating braille into print immediately. The Mountbatten Brailler has been developed and manufactured under license from the Mountbatten Memorial Trust.
