BrailleEcran: A Braille Approach to Text Entry on Smartphones

Abstract

Nowadays, due to touchscreen, mobile devices have become much more dynamic than in the past. However, due the same reason, those devices are less accessible for blind people who depend on physical keyboards to type. In order to allow blind people performing text entry more easily, this research have as goal the development of a method, called BrailleÉcran, for smartphones with no physical keyboard. The method combines an Android application and a kind of screen protector with points and Braille symbols. This paper presents a proposal, results, discussion and future works.
