oPtix / Product


The concept of oPtix is to allow blind people to explore all kinds of written texts in real time without the need for expensive and specialised prior conversion to Braille. The small form factor and portability of the device offers unparalleled immediacy of access to a huge range of written material that has, until now, been unavailable to them. For instance, oPtix can be a translator used with magazines, books, letters, papers and loose-leaf documents.
