The Tiger embossers should be quiet as they are not grossly 
mechanical, the way others are  Nothing is going to be completely 
quiet though.

Fast is a relative term, the fastest embossers are in the $30,000 to 
$100,000 range, and I don't think you can afford those.  If you can I 
will be your tech guy!

The index basic D has improved, and we have had good luck with them.

Also, the Braille quality on the Tiger isn't its strongest point, so 
make sure you have seen it first.  It is best at graphics, and 
graphics/text mixes.
