Smartwatch Takes On One of the Visually-Impaired’s Greatest Hurdles
Feel your texts and emails with Dot, a braille smartwatch that can translate webpages and ebooks for the blind and near-blind
Of the 285,000,000 visually-impaired in the world, 95 percent don’t bother learning how to read braille given that only 1 percent of all books are translated into that language and the cost of E-braille readers are upwards of $2,000. Seeking to reshape the way the blind (and near-blind) feel about reading, Dot is a crafty device capacitating the legally blind with the ability to receive texts and emails.
