In May 2010, the second year of senior high study in China. I participated
in a voluntary work to serve the blind people. I was so lucky to experience
the blind people’s education but felt very disappointed that they did not have
the convenient facilities for the life and education. Then I started to think
about using the knowledge which I have had to design a tablet computer for the
blind people, and it would open a new world for them.
The blind people’s tablet computer would be an electronic product with lots of
functions such as Braille alphabet input, Braille alphabet display, Braille alphabet
transformation and Braille alphabet scanning. This tablet computer could scan the
paragraphs in the magazines and books and then transform them into Braille alphabets.
These Braille alphabets would appear in the displayer or are converted into sound for
the blind people. The tablet computer has the handwriting input device, which is very
convenient for the blind people to input the Braille alphabet. This equipment would be
very useful for the blind people to get higher education and more knowledge.
To summarize, my tablet computer for blind people has the following characters:
- It is a scanning and displaying equipment for the blind people to read magazines and books;
- It has the input device which could accept the handwriting input Braille alphabet.
- It has reading function with gesture, which means it can read Braille alphabet according to the position of blind people’s hands.
