Braille itself is a pattern of bumps denoting the alphabet and common word or symbols. To learn the basics, BraillED teaches users the alphabet by introducing a random letter and allowing the user to trace the pattern on the screen. This can be accomplished by tapping each bump on screen, or moving your finger over the dots in a dragging motion.
BraillED uses both haptic and audio feedback, via vibrations and the speakers of the phone, to guide a visually impaired user. This is accomplished using built-in speech synthesis libraries in Apple’s iOS and access to the device hardware to create vibrations.
