A long awaited Mountbatten Braille Whisperer has arrived. The quietest and most comprehensive Braille learning device, the Mountbatten Bluetooth Smart Brailler is changed outside and inside. A new more efficient, faster and 70% quieter embossing mechanism will help students increase their Braille skills even more.

The MB Learning System has been designed for children who need Braille. It is a fun and inclusive introduction to Braille literacy and provides a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning. Extensive research and development has resulted in a design suitable for the very first stages of Braille instruction through to high school and beyond.

Teachers and peers will have no reasons to complain about the noise. They will in fact enjoy having a Mountbatten in their classes because now more than ever before all participants can easily read and write in either print or Braille.

Those that have seen it were wowed by its power and features, including an improved battery that will hold charge four times as long.
