    ViewPlus Adds HP
    Inkjet Printing to Braille Documents

    CORVALLIS, Ore., Feb. 05 — ViewPlus Technologies, Inc.
    today announced the release of the Pro Ink Attachment (PIA)Solution for adding
    ink print to Braille text and tactile graphic documents.ViewPlus worked with
    Hewlett-Packard Specialty Printing Systems to incorporate HP Inkjet into their
    professional series Braille printers.

    Braille documents can now be shared with sighted
    colleagues and teachers – - even with friends and family.The PIA prints the
    corresponding ink characters above or alongside the Braille embossing. The PIA
    also allows for images to be embossed and printed. Anything that appears on the
    computer screen can quickly be made into a raised, printed image on paper.

    Attaching the PIA instantly
    transforms the fast, robust ViewPlus Pro Braille printer into a high-speed
    embossing printer, creating the only compact integrated solution for high volume
    Braille and ink production. The PIA is the only embossing printer capable of
    double-sided Braille and ink printing thus saving paper costs in production.

    “Braille readers often have
    difficulty communicating with sighted people at work and in the classroom,” says
    Jeff Gardner, ViewPlus Vice President, Sales & Marketing. “Combining HP
    Inkjet with the ViewPlus Pro Embosser means Braille documents can now be shared
    with anyone.”

    “It is
    exciting and satisfying to be able to extend the value of any Hewlett-Packard
    solutions in supporting new users such as the visually impaired users segment,”
    says Clay Higgins, Hewlett-Packard Director Sales and Marketing.

    Ink Attachment comes with software to translate text to Braille in MS
    Word and Excel. And, unlike other Braille printers, the Pro with PIA is
    quiet so it can be used in a normal office environment.The PIA is now
    available for purchase.Please call your local ViewPlus dealer, or
    contact ViewPlus directly @ 541.754.4002 for more details.
