interpoint

noun in·ter·point \ ˈin-tər-ˌpȯint \

Definition of interpoint

: the embossing of braille on both sides of the paper in such a way that the points of one side fall between points of the other side often used before another noun
  • A Braille embosser is a printer that produces Braille by raising bumps on the paper when the paper is struck by the printer keys. The electronic embosser or printer takes its instruction from the computer instead of directly from a human operator to produce the same product only faster. A recent innovation in printing from a computer file is interpoint Braille, where Braille is printed onto both sides of the paper.
