BRAITLLE / A communication device for DEAF-BLIND person

BRAITLLE

The number of people with both visual and hearing impairments in the U.S. is estimated at 70,000 ~ 100,000. They feel isolated in the world alone. It's a big deal for them to distinguish people or even to express simple words. Their only means of communication is 'finger braille' using six fingers. However, even that means cannot be used unless they meet the other person in person. So, we created a device that allowed them to communicate wirelessly even when they were away from the public. 'BRAITLLE' is that.
