If you have .brf, or, .brl files you wish to print from your Mac to your Index embosser connected by USB ports, you will need to download the following:

First of all, download the Mac driver from the Index website.

***If you do not have a login set up for the Index site, you will need to request a user name and password.

Here is the link to download the driver,

Go here.

To get the Index Print program, please call The Brailler Depot at 973-272-7667

Install the driver and the Index Print program then go to system preferences to print and fax, or, on the newer Macs, print and scan, add your Index embosser and choose the Mac driver.

After these steps are complete, open the Index Print program and follow the prompts.

This works quite well for us here.
