How do I hold the Hable One? 

Hable One is like a game controller. Simply hold it with both hands during use. There’s no need for a table or desk!

Using the Hable One while on the go

It doesn’t matter whether you’re travelling by train, tram, boat or plane, the Hable One can be easily used whilst on the go. The keyboard is compact – similar in size to the iPhone 5 – and at 90 grams weighs less than a banana! What’s more, it comes with a special removable strap to hang around your wrist.

There are 3 ways to use Hable One. Sleep mode, when not using the keyboard. Awake mode, while texting. And pocket mode, which prevents any accidental key presses, while still maintaining the Bluetooth connection. 

Using braille for typing texts
