Bengaluru engineers created device for blind to get easy internet access
Four engineers from Bengaluru have created a device for the blind and visually impaired. The device will allow the blind to access the internet easily.
The device is called ‘Sparsh’ and converts online texts into Braille in real time and reads them out to the user. The users also get the option to scroll through the text at a speed that suits them. This feature is not available in most of the other similar devices available in the market.
This device is powered by a Dynamic Braille Board or DBB, and it enables conversion of digital data into its braille output in real-time.
