The J. M. Glauser is a portable braille writer with padded rests under the keys, making this a "silent" machine. It has six braille keys and a spacing key and embosses on a 15/16 inch-wide roll of paper tape. A folding arm, extending 3 1/2 inches from the braille writer, holds the tape. The braille writer is attached to the bottom of the carrying case, which serves as a base. "Made by JM Glauser & Sons. Ltd, Model F, No 56, For The National Institute For The Blind London W.I.," is inscribed on the front of the braille writer.
