The Typewriter Database 197x Perkins Brailler Serial # A-22281 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 197x Perkins Brailler Serial # A-22281 front number 290998.

Okeh, let's discuss: is a brailler a typewriter? I ask, because the category for "Perkins" dates back to before I took over, so Dirk apparently thought they were, enough so that he created the category.

However, I'm not sure I see why braillers *would* be typewriters when steno machines *aren't*, except that braillers take normal-sized paper and have all of the basic mechanical features of a typewriter in basic operation, while stenos really are operationally-speaking, entirely different animals.

also, most brailler manufacturers are still around, and it might actually be possible to get age lists directly from them, which would be nice, for a change. :D

Opinions?
