Talking Braille

I wanna talk about Braille! It’s so cool that us blind folks can write in Braille on iThings and on computers with external displays.

Wouldn’t it be cooler if we could write braille directly on such devices?

Applehas already started the work by making braille built-in to their IOS platform. I dream of the day when they bring such capability to OSX.

That said I am having a lot of problems with the built-in braille input on IOS. Hopefully all will be fixed in subsequent updates.

I am writing this post in a braille app on my iPad. Look at how far braille has come in the past decade or so.
