We have been covering the development of the Canute multi-line braille reader for a few years as it moves towards its anticipated release. Thankfully, as you will find below, the unit is now heading towards an initial production run with a launch for later this year. Ed Rogers, Managing Director of Bristol Braille Technology, and Dave Williams, Chair of the Braillists Foundation, look back at the Canute s journey to market and summarize some under the hood changes to the device that have occurred since we last spoke to the duo. J.J. also gathers some observations on Bristol Braill s recent win of the NBP Touch of Genius award and how it impacted their work in this critical launch phase of the project. To learn more about the release of the Canute, and to see information about launch partners, visit the Bristol Braille website
