Reading Braille is a time-consuming activity. Snail is an electronic Braille-to-voice converter that reads and vocalises Braille instantly.
When the user rolls Snails pressure-sensitive touch pad across lines of Braille, the device creates a corresponding voice output. The vocal translation can be recorded. The concept allows users to feel the freedom and independence of reading Braille easily and quickly, and of replaying the text at any subsequent time or place. A Bluetooth earphone can be used to listen to the translation in noise-sensitive environments such as libraries.
