Team 100% Enthusiasm
The mission of Tactile is to empower the visually impaired through education equality by enabling them to have the opportunity to access all printed texts. Our innovation allows real-time conversion of printed text to Braille. Ultimately, a visually impaired person would use the portable scanner to scan the text from the spine of a book to the outer edge of the book. The scanner would transfer information to a refreshable Braille display wirelessly, and the visually impaired would be able to read the Braille text and repeat the same process to read the next page.
