Braille, a tactile writing system, is the only way for the visually impaired to survive in this world.
A group of students at Sylhet's Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) has just taken it to the next level -- by developing an electronic Braille device that's more affordable.
The six-member team from Robsust, the university's robotics organisation, has, in fact, designed iBraille that allows the blind to read written documents or even PDF files effortlessly on any digital device -- be it a mobile, a laptop or a desktop computer.
The members of the team are Moaz Mohammad Abdul Karim, Irfan Nafiz Shahan, Al-Mubin Khan Nabil, Tasnuva Chowdhury, Arnab Paul and Pramit Dey.
According to the team, this device converts handwriting or digital writing into Braille.
