Written by Roope Takala, Nokia Braille Reader
Hi all! Let me introduce you to the Nokia Braille Reader. We here at Nokia, and our partners as well, have been thinking of how to do something concrete about accessibility for quite some while. And now, our new Nokia Braille Reader application gives SMS for the blind and visually impaired. It captures received SMS messages and brings them to the foreground for reading using Braille and tactile feedback. The application was concepted together with actual users and researchers focusing on the topic, and we are now happy to show the first experimental version of the concept. We hope to get your comments and feedback so this application could be truly optimized to your use. We also want to share our enthusiasm in creating innovations for you and with you.
