I find label printing to be much easier when using a full sheet of Avery labels and Microsoft Word with my Brother DCP-7030 laser printer. If you place the mailing address in a Word docx file and choose label from the ribbon bar, Word will highlight the address and let you pick from a list of label vendors including Avery. You can select whether you’re printing a full sheet or if not, select the row and column of the label on the sheet to print. It works well and provided you’ve identified the location of the label you’re printing on the sheet and loaded the sheet correctly into your printer’s paper tray, the results are good. I’ve done this with both Word 2019 and Word 2010.

No, it would take a braille embosser to do braille labels.
So these are labels that are about 4 by 5 inches,? Do you happen to know the label number? Avery labels all have unique names/numbers so it would be good to know which labels go with that printer, or even the printer model so one could find it if one chose to.

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.
