Braille Touch– Mobile Phone for the Blinds

Georgia: Mario Romeo, a Postdoctoral fellow from the School of Interactive Computing, along with the project’s principal investigator, suggests that “chorded and gesture based texting” is the answer for blind people.

Those with impaired eyes will now be able to use touch pads easily. For normal people too, this technology would mean using mobile phone without having to even look at it. This touch pad incorporates the Braille writing system.

Tests conducted with visually impaired people revealed that this prototype touch pad has given far better results than any of the technologies having same objectives.
