Blind woman from Saudi Arabia invents Braille Box for students
April 2, 2018
Kowthar Al-Hamdi from Saudi Arabia is blind. She is determined to do her bit to help other blind people, and that is why she invented the Braille Box.
This unique equipment will translate college textbooks to Braille. This will enable more blind students to complete their education.
Kowthar is a student at the King Fasal University Education College. She has 200 volunteers to work on the Braille Box. The special device is called Braille Sense. It will read the regular word documents through a memory card and will print them out in Braille. The Braille Sense will cost up to Rs five lakh.
According to Kowthar, there are many blind students out there who are exceptionally talented. However, they lack the resources to bring out their talents. That is when the Braille Box will come to their help.
Kowthar is looking for more volunteers to join the project. The initiative aims to enable the blind to become authors and pursue higher education in various fields.
