BrailleReader

BrailleReader


BrailleReader allows you to read your SMS using Braille, without any peripherals.

You don't need to do anything, BrailleReader will open automatically when a new SMS is received and by sliding your finger across the screen, you can read your message one character at a time.

BrailleReader displays a character at a time using all the available space, to mimic a Braille character. Each character is represented by a maximum of six dots, which vibrate when you slide your finger over them.

By using vibration, one can identify which dot is "raised" and after having touched all the display, get a notion of the character represented.

Right now you can use several gestures:
· Flick right to left to advance one character
· Flick left to right to go back one character
· Double tap anywhere to go back to the beginning of the message

When you're done reading your message, just press the Home button to leave the application.

Please note that this a work in progress and a technology preview, so please mind the missing features that will come over the coming months.

Finally, don't hesitate to contact me at [email protected] if you find any bugs or have any suggestions.
