The small Tiger embossers from ViewPlus are about the quietest I’ve heard.

Subject: [Athen] Quieter Braille Embosser for a Public Space


Our department is looking into the possibility of obtaining an embosser for one of the main lab spaces in our library. We want to ensure that folks are able to emboss materials autonomously (rather than requesting materials through our office). Most of the braillers I've encountered, however, are pretty loud. Is anyone aware of smaller embossers that might be a bit quieter?

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!
