New keyboard technology speaks for itself to the visually impaired

A Japanese company has invented a keyboard for the visually impaired.

The keyboard was developed by three researchers from Yazaki Electronics and it enables the visually impaired to take notes easily.

The keyboard can speak out the letters typed thanks to the Braille alphabet, an advantage that previous models did not have.

The keyboard can also store information typed and can divert it to email accounts and a printer if needed. The keyboard has also an MP3 reader. It weighs 500 grams, and is 10 centimeters wide and 20 centimeters long.
