Yoi shina, yoi kangae: New Smartphone to Convert Text to Braille for the Blind

share on:

This isn’t exactly the look of the phone but it’s the prototype. Sumit Dagar, who runs the Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship, located in IIM-A, says he is still working on developing the world’s first Braille Smartphone.

But how does the phone work? The messages and texts are sent as regular messages. However, instead of a smooth glass panel, the phone comes with depressions. The innovative ‘touch-screen’ elevates and depresses contents into touchable patterns which can then be deciphered by the blind.

Yoi shinayoi kangae (good thinking, good product)
