Device that helps the blind access digital content
May 4, 2016
Innovision, a start up, has developed a machine that can help the visually impaired access the Internet and other digital content.
Called BrailleMe, it's a machine that plugs into mobile phones and computers and comes with a tool to let people write in braille and have it appear in digital text. It also converts digital text into bumps for readable braille.
Every time a user finished reading a line, they have to press a button that is conveniently placed to move to the next line.
BrailleMe can also be used for surfing the web for checking Facebook. It supports Bluetooth connectivity and has an SD card port, so people can access almost any file.
It also costs less than existing text-to-braille devices.
