For your conveinence, below is a short, 10 minute instructional video via YouTube that shows how to operate the SARA device:

 

 

As shown in the video, SARA is also compatible to other devices, including the Focus 40 Braille Display unit, which we also carry. 

Both machines are available at the library's Reference Desk ((203) 622-7911) located on the first floor.  For security reasons, we ask that you please leave a valid form of ID at the desk when you inquire about using the devices.   

Any questions?  Call me at (203) 622-7918 or email me here.
