Tactile was developed by Five Young aspiring Women in MIT who wanted to make a difference in the field of Engineering. Their goal were to make books and texts more accessible to those who are visually impaired or legally blind, while encouraging other girls to make differences in the world of Engineering as well.
Tactile is the first device dedicated Text-to-Braille converter. Their aim is to help those who are visually impaired by increasing access to printed text information at a lower price range. This would allow all books and printed text documents to be more available and accessible to everyone.
