Kindle for the blind to be available soon

The first ‘Kindle for the blind’ will be on sale by the end of 2017. It's called the Canute and it will turn the text downloaded from a memory stick into Braille. This will give blind readers access to a range of books.

Developers say it is the world’s first multi-line digital Braille e-reader that will allow people to read nine lines of Braille with 40 characters on each line.

The price won't be cheap and it will work in much the same way as a regular e-reader. Engineers have been working on the Canute since 2012.
