Is it really a Dymo then?
I thought that Dymo was only that thick plastic tape that is either 3/8 or 1/2 inch wide.

No, this Dymo printer just prints out paper self-adhesive address labels.

Alison,

So I'm confused, does this print on Dymo tape, or paper labels?

And, is it doing Braille, like a label gun, or is it doing print?

I was of the impression that you put in Dymo tape, and it embosses the Braille, like a Braille label gun.

 

Thanks.

No, you insert a roll of address labels into the Dymo printer, which is probably about 6 inches tall by six or seven inches long and connects via USB to the computer.

The way I have been using it is to select the address, paste it into a blank Word page, press alt and arrow along to Dymo, hit enter and then print, but at the moment Jaws is being a bit stubborn about reading the menu options in the Dymo Tab but I have learnt how to overcome this by counting the number of times to tab.

It then prints the label, which I tear off at the serrated edge.

The labels are self-adhesive and ideal for putting on envelopes, packages etc. But it is not a braille labeller.
