Computers present processed information to users via output devices including monitors, speakers, and printers. Other, less common output devices include projectors, plotters, and braille embossers.

In computer terminology, output is defined as data that has been processed into useful form or information. The different categories of output are text, graphics, tactile, audio, and video. This information can be consumed by a user using any type of output device. Screens are the most common and display text, graphics, and video. Tactile output can be in the form of printed braille text or make use of haptic technology. The goal of input and processing, output provides the information users need to work efficiently and make decisions.
