Braille Application

It is a way of reading and sensitive texts by compensating the sense of consideration with the sense of touch,which is an urgent need for the blind to enable them to read,  following my interests in the developments known in the educational arena and in order to provide Arab applications for people with special needs,  I thought of completing  an application  that provides several simplified directed  to learn to read in Braille,  whether for those interested in this field or for who live under one roof with a blind or visually impaired person. Braille is a simple interactive application to help learn and understand the written language of the blind, is a guide for beginners in learning Braille,

The app  offers:

– Arabic letters

– Formation marks

– Basic punctuation

– Numbers 

– Basic math marks

– Latin letters

The app provides a variety of interactive exercises in pre-installation and understanding areas. Braille is a method that enables a person who cannot access printed materials to read and write normally. Read the Qur’an: Only using braille. There are many institutions  that print the Holy Quran in a Braille way. Being able to read books, magazines and other publications. Working in a situation that requires following up on text  content, where the blind can use the Braille line to read what he would like to explain or work on. Conducting calculations, especially complex onesLearning new languages: especially when it comes to knowing the alphabets and spelling of words and compositions of sentences, as it benefits him in training to read in that language and to retrieve what he reads. Please note that this app is not specifically designed for people with severe visual impairment.
