Existing braille keyboards for the visually impaired were heavy and expensive, making them uncomfortable to use. However, the T-Dot is a product that innovatively improves upon all these weaknesses at once.
This product features an excellent portability in light weight(59g) and hand grip size by modifying the Perkins-type structure common to the Braille keyboard for the blind into a T-fold structure, resulting in reduction of the width by about half, weight by about 1/10th and the price by about 1/10th. Made with 12 input keys and 1 jog wheel, it dedicated to boosting the navigating function allows users type faster and more conveniently.
