2.1. How to Use


To start writing, orientate the slate with the stylus in the lower right corner.


Remove the stylus from the body and begin writing using the stylus from right to left. This is the same way of writing as a traditional slate and stylus, except the Versa Slate does not require paper.


Every five cells you will feel tactile delimiters to quickly check the number of cells used.


When you finish writing braille, place the Versa Slate in reading mode by flipping the device over. You can verify that you are in reading mode if you observe the dotted line in the lower left corner. Remember to read the memo from left to right.


If you want to delete a single braille cell, you can push the cell with your finger. As Versa Slate is a mechanical device, you can push the cells back in as needed. And you can use the reset buttons to erase the entire memo.


†the slate includes four buttons on the Top and Bottom. Pressing a pair of these buttons (1 on the top and 1 on the bottom) will clear a section of cells. A section contains 5 cells across and all 4 rows of the slate. Pressing all eight buttons will clear the entire slate.


Caution: Please note that you must write a note in the writing mode, otherwise the product could be damaged. There is no liability for the manufacturer if the Versa Slate is damaged by trying to write in the reading mode.
