BLITAB – Tablet for Blind people

How to read Braille on a Tablet?

More than 314 million people are estimated to be blind and visually impaired worldwide. And by 2050 unfortunately this number will double. Only 1% of all published books are available in Braille. But still Braille remains the only fundamental tool for education and literacy of blind people. Touchscreen devices are accessible only via voice-over and special Braille displays are extremely limited, bulky and expensive (up to 14.000 €).

BLITAB TEAMBLITAB is a next generation affordable and multi-functional device for Braille reading and writing that displays one whole page Braille text, without any mechanical elements. BLITAB is like an e-reader which instead of using a LCD-screen, forms small bubbles on the surface, haptic and stable enough to be touched and read by the finger.
