Braille On The Go

My students need a portable Braille display to increase their access to Braille

My Students

My students are inspiring. They are all blind or visually impaired. Many of my students are from low-income homes, and over 80% of the students in our district receive free or reduced-price lunch. We are constantly challenging our students to step out of their comfort zones. This can be challenging for a student with a visual impairment.

My goal is to provide my students with the tools they need to be successful and confident in their classrooms and around their peers.

My Project

I teach Braille to six middle and high school students with legal blindness. I would like to expose them to more assistive technology that will allow them to better access and input information on tablets, computers, and their smart phones.

The Braillant 14 is a refreshable Braille display, which means it can be connected to various devices to allow the user to access information in Braille and input Braille using the small keyboard on the device.

The Braillant is a little larger than a deck of cards so it easily fits in backpacks, purses, and even pockets. I would like my students to learn how to use this device because it will give them more independence and greater access to the world and higher education. This device would be especially helpful in advanced math because some complex problems can take up to two pages of Braille paper.
