The “iPad” for the Blind

About BLITAB®

BLITAB® is an award winning first Braille tablet device
empowering blind and visually impaired people

BLITAB® is the World’s first tactile tablet for blind and visually impaired people. BLITAB® is a next curve Braille device for Braille reading and writing that displays one whole page Braille text at once, without any mechanical elements. It is like an e-book which instead of using a screen displays small physical bubbles. For the first time our users can have an overview of a whole document. The new developed technology used in the BLITAB® tablet provides an opportunity for an affordable,100x better solution, disrupting a market that has no innovations in the last 40 years.

We developed a multi-line Braille tablet that delivers real-time content to people with visual impairments. BLITAB® offers completely new user experience for Braille and non-Braille readers via touch navigation, text-to-speech output and Perkins-style keyboard application. It allows a direct converting of any text file into Braille from USB sticks, Internet and obtaining information via NFC tags. BLITAB® is not just a tablet, it is a platform for all existing and future software applications for blind readers. So we do not compete, we integrate and collaborate.

blind people independent  at school, at home and at work and to enable them to maintain gainful employment
