BrailleTouch Helps Visually Impaired Users

Touch screen on smartphones and Tablet has totally changed the way we use our gadgets. If you hand over a toy phone to a kid, he tries to operate it sliding his finger on the display. We are totally used to touch screen now.


How about visually impaired ? Can they text using touch screen ?


A team from Georgia Tech, led by Post Doctorate Fellow Mario Romero (School of Interactive Computing) has designed BrailleTouch for touchscreen mobile devices. The prototype app allows visually impaired people to easily type and opens the door for everyone to text or type without looking at the screen.
