Touch Read
Touch Read

Touch Read is a new type of reader that scans traditional paper books and converts text into Braille bumps. The device converts the scanned text signals into binary digital electronic signals that the computer can accept, and finally arranges them for reading by the blind.Touch Read solves the problem that braille paper books are expensive and few in number, so that all paper books can be read by blind people, enabling them to experience the world's colors and powerful scientific and human care through Touch Read.
