Dot Talk / Message Reception Machine

Dot Talk

DOT TALK is a smart device-based auxiliary machine for the blind who use smart phones, to
easily check messages delivered by converting
them into Braille. It can be connected to all smart devices with connecting terminals, and provides messages in Braille on the main screen.

Even though smart phone has been developed
for a variety of users, Voice recognition is the only system assisting the blind. It is also hard to help the hearing-impaired check messages. What if people with this disorder can use Braille which is intuitive and familiar with them, in their smart phones, too?
