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.
