About the Braille Glove
Below we will tell you about the first mobile communication device for deafblind people "Braille Glove". This device:
- helps them to communicate
- gives access to information around them
- helps to socialize in the professional field
The principle of device operation can be described as follows:
You just need to start speak to the deafblind person and a special program will recognize your speech and transmit what you said to the Braille Glove via silent tactile signals in Braille. To answer, the user need just touch a palm by finger-tips and the typed message will be quickly converted to speech. Watch this video to see how the glove works.
Here're results of the testings:
- learning period is just 3-4 weeks
- speech recognition speed is 36 words per minute
- typing speed is 25 words per minute
