World Braille Day is celebrated every year on January 4th because it is Louis Braille’s birthday, the inventor of braille! World Braille Day is a reminder of the importance of accessibility and independence for those who are blind or partially sighted.
The BrailleSense Polaris is an innovative collaboration of Braille and mainstream technology, offering the visually impaired unprecedented accessible and intuitive productivity in today’s tablet-based world. With a 32-cell Braille display and a 11-key Perkins-style keyboard with Ctrl and Alt Keys, the Polaris looks and feels like a traditional notetaker. However, its competitive modern hardware and connectivity, along with direct access to Android applications, ensure it stacks up solidly against modern off-the-shelf phones and tablets. The BrailleSense Polaris is available from Sight and Sound Technology.
