Not every blind people was born to know the Braille. In fact, learning Braille is much more difficult than learning second language, such as Chinese or Spanish. Braille Learner can help the blind to learn the Braille more easily. It scans and converts texts into Braille. Meanwhile, the embedded audio function pronounces the Braille when the user touches it. It can help the blind people to learn and recognize every corresponding Braille. By using the image processing technology “Edge Detection”, Braille Learner can identify the scanned texts, and convert them into Braille immediately. Each Braille dot on the pad is a magnetic dots.
