Saudi student and Engineer Wisam Al-Sabban has designed and carried out studies for an invention enabling blind people to browse the Internet and read content on websites. The TextoBraille system, which consists of a glove and a special keyboard, is based on the Braille language, said Al-Sabban.
To use TextoBraille, users wear the glove and move their fingers on the keyboard. As the pointer comes across words and letters, they are translated into Braille in the form of air the user feels through tiny holes in the glove’s fingertips, Al-Sabban said. He said the invention, which is in the stages of design and development, was selected as one of the six best student projects in Australia during an annual innovation contest in Sydney. -SaudiGazzetteAm not sure how practical this will be with different content being created daily on the internet, but RSS can be easily a great way of staying updated using the TextoBraille.. Plus, it's really great to have the web even more accessible, and now my blogs can be enjoyed by the blind.. Am pretty excited!
