App developed by teenagers to teach Braille to blind kids
September 24, 2017
A group of teenagers in the United States have created an app that is of great help to blind children.
When the teenagers heard that only 10% of blind people under the age of 18 years could read Braille, they developed an app that can announce words and letters loudly for the user.
At the same time, it builds the sentence in Braille on a training board. This helps the children feel the way the sound is spelt on the board.
The app is being called the first of its kind in the world. The developers have received a $10,000 award to work on this further.
