Braille is a tactile reading and writing system for the blind. However, more than 90% of the blind can't read it. Learning takes much time and effort, but there is no affordable and effective tool to use. Further, the smartphone is an indispensable tool for everyone to communicate, work, play, and is equally important, if not more, for the blind. There are, however, practical limitations for them to use it with touch gestures without seeing.
Braillist is developing a compact digital dictionary for the blind to look up braille letters and words easily and immediately in many languages and subjects. It can help them learn and read braille independently and expand braille knowledge. Moreover, the braille dictionary is bundled with Rivo which provides essential functions to improve the smartphone user experience of the blind. They can use the smartphone much better and improve daily productivity, independence, and quality of life.
