1979 Neubert Braille-Typewriter Serial # 673/79 1979 Neubert Braille-Typewriter typewriter, Serial # 673/79 Milan Berta's 1979 Neubert Braille-Typewriter typewriter. 2021-06-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 1979 Neubert Braille-Typewriter Serial # 673/79 Manufacturer Mechanische Werkstatt für Blindenhilfsmittel der DDR is the successor of Karl Neubert, a manufacturer of typewriters for the blind. This typewriter was manufactured in 1979 and sold to Slovakia in January 1980. I am surprised how well this machine is adapted for the blind. You don't have to write on A4 classic paper. There is a fuser on the roller to hold the entire roll of paper. You wind it on a roller and unwind it gradually as you type. In the back there is a removable bench, on which the blind can read the written text with their fingers.

The typewriter is fully functional, with a case, complete accessories and a template with tools for "manual" writing of text. The package also included a bill for the machine and a warranty card.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
