Mobile app that translates braille into vibrations.


Vibraille is a mobile application that translates letters from text messages into their corresponding braille pattern represented in a 2×3 grid.For each letter, users scan the screen with their finger triggering vibration when over a cell that contains a braille bump, giving them a quick mental image of the current character. Using this kind of haptic feedback would allow those with visual impairments an alternative to the a speech only interface with mobile phones.
