More Details

(i) Design

The SMART Brailler is an early learning tool designed to promote an interactive educational experience between students, teachers and parents by displaying, vocalizing, and brailling what a student types.

(ii) Benefits

  • Accelerates Learning. Encourages multi-sensory learning through visual, tactile and auditory feedback, increasing the student’s ability to process new information and making learning fun.
  • Lightens the Load. Weighs 20 percent less than the classic Perkins Brailler, making it easy to transport between home and classroom.

  • Integrates with Mainstream Technology. Edits, saves and transfers brailled documents to digital text files via USB, letting sighted teachers or parents read the document on a computer.
