Cosmo Hardware Description
The Cosmo keyboard uses keys that have a living hinge similar to a piano’s keyboard. Because of the innovations
in the design of the Keyboard there are no electronic parts or wires in the keyboard itself. The keyboard fits in a depression in
the top of the case which protects the Cosmo Brailler's internal functions but allows the user access to the keyboard and the case
under the keyboard. In this way the keyboard can be removed and cleaned by the user. The case of the device can be wiped off if there
is a spill or if dirt or other debris accumulates in or under the keyboard. The keyboard itself can be cleaned with soap and water,
then dried and replaced in the Cosmo Brailler.
Cosmo can be used as a stand alone Braille typewriter or as a computer input and output
Braille device when using the Duxbury Braille Translation application. When there is an assignment or class hand out, the document
can be translated to Braille using the Duxbury application. The assignment can then be embossed on paper using the Cosmo emboss function
in real time, in the classroom without disturbing the other students.
Duxbury Braille Translation application has over 130 languages
available. Cosmo is an internationally used Braille device. Math codes, Braille tables, various Braille translation grades are already
available in the Duxbury application.
