Me, too, what Dan said, hands down, get the Juliet--great embosser,
reliable, low-maintenance. I've known people who have had them for years and
years with no problems.

Another vote for the Juliet Pro 60 here. Have worked with a variety of
embossers over the years and the Juliet is the most reliable and has the
features you list. If you are going to be doing graphics, you'll want
something in addition to the Juliet -- we have a Tiger Pro that's used for

You'll most likely want to get a sound enclosure for it if you don't have
one specified. We have one of the older cabinets -- the new one from
Enabling looks pretty good though it's not clear how it'd handle large
embossing jobs.

Any recommendations for medium volume Braille embosser for embossing
textbooks? We need something faster than a personal/desktop system but not
as big/fast as what is used to in high volume publishing houses for

* Interpoint
* Accepts at least 11.5" wide paper

* Reasonable footprint and space requirements
* Front access only (for loading and retrieving paper) would be ideal so
that we can provide accessible access to it without requiring too big of a
room. Being able to put it sideways against the wall would be OK if front
and back access is required.
* Anything decent in a cut-sheet embosser?
