Patti Walsh, Oregon State University, Computer Science Student
The TIGER provides me access to anything that can be created in the Windows environment. Since most of my professors create class materials with Windows, they don't have to learn Braille - they simply email materials to me and I print them on my TIGER.
Susan A. Osterhaus M.Ed., Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impared, Instructor
This past summer my students and I used the TIGER to graph linear, quadratic, and trig functions - and they produced their own spreadsheets on the TIGER as well. This is the only embosser that can produce such quality in computerized tactile graphics.
Matt Tominey, Cornell University, Director of Student Disability Services
The Tiger system has been very easy to learn and takes very little effort to translate visual information into tactile and Braille formats in a timely manner. I highly recommend the Tiger to all my colleagues who work with individuals with visual impairments.
Tom Johnston, Loughborough University, Mathematics & Accounting & Financial Management Student
I am studying mathematics and accounting and financial management at Loughborough University and it is the first time that I have been able to receive all my maths in a tactile format since I started.
