$500 Braille Display from Transforming Braille Group Entering Field Testing


There's been a lot of talk of affordable braille displays, but some tangible results may soon be on the horizon. According to the latest edition of the American Printing House for the Blind newsletter, field testing will soon begin for a 20-cell, sub-$500 braille display, developed by theTransforming Braille Group. The display will connect via USB or Bluetooth and read braille and text files from another device or an SD card slot. It's targeted as a braille reading device and not meant to compete with higher-priced offerings. APH, the National Federation of the Blind, and the Perkins School for the Blind are conducting field evaluations over the coming months. Check the link on this post to the APH newsletter for more details.
