Braillecast, Episode 7 – CSUN Special

California State University of Northridge held their 33rd International Conference on Technology and Disability in San Diego this March. BrailleCast made a whistle stop tour of the exhibit hall to discover what new braille and tactile reading products could be making waves in 2018.

We’ll hear about the tactile graphics Display that enabled blind students to touch a total solar eclipse, we learn about a metric braille caliper, we hear about the latest low cost braille tech from India, and we get hands on with a paperless braille slate from South Korea.

We’ll also learn about Spanish product Braibook, hear about improvements to the Mountbatten Brailler, discover a new 20 cell braille notetaker from HIMS, play Braille music with HandyTech and, following mixed response to the Dot Watch, what’s next for the Dot Corporation?
