Innovation Description

The Literacy for VIPs program will provide training and braille technology to teachers at the St. Bernadette Resource Center for the Blind to assist their instruction of students who are blind/low vision. The Mountbatten Pro Brailler (MB Pro) features include an ergonomic Braille keyboard, memory, speech feedback, and, most importantly, the ability to translate from braille to print and print to braille (including through Bluetooth connection). This feature assists teachers who may not be literate in braille and facilitates teaching to persons who are blind/low vision for these teachers. The Jot-a-Dot portable brailler modernizes braille learning through its six-key braille entry system. It allows young learners a speedy, portable method for learning braille and prepares them to use larger, more powerful braillers.
