About BLITAB®

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

BLITAB® is the first ever Braille tablet using a disruptive actuating technology developed by our company, to create tactile text and graphics in real time. People call it “The tablet for the blind”. Our novel invention is the cross-industry affordable technology (ICT & MTech/Health), which allows a whole page reading on a tactile screen. BLITAB® allows for the first-time blind users to learn, work and play with one mobile device and to have digital access to information in real time. BLITAB® converts any document into Braille text; little smart dots (“tixels”) raise immediately from the surface and then fall down again when text changes.

BLITAB® offers completely new user experience for Braille and non-Braille readers via touch navigation, text-to-speech output and Perkins-style keyboard application. 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. BLITAB® empowers children and students in the process of learning and acquiring new abilities at school and university, as well as adults using the Braille tablet at the office in their spare time – to read books, to web-surf on the Internet etc.

Our aim

BLITAB® a leader  in digital lifestyle for every blind and visually impaired user

 Our motivation 

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

ONE SOLUTION FOR MAJOR GLOBAL PROBLEMS

The costs of producing hard copy Braille and digital refreshable Braille displays have remained extremely expensive and unaffordable.

Millions of children are left-behind in their education due to lack of Braille books and expensive devices.

Unemployment rate stands at over 75% for blind population.Poor Braille literacy correlates with higher unemployment rate among blind people.

All previous leads indirectly to exclusion from society and not active participation in the community.

BLITAB was designed for universal literacy and inclusive future
