What ?

BrailleType is a proposed keyboard for the visually challenged, using ubiquitous Android touch devices

Why ?

Traditional approaches have restricted written communication for the visually challenged to audio, using screen readers and dictation engines.

This approach aims to allow visually challenged users to type in the same way that they read Braille. This should allow easier and faster typed communication.
