3371 The Most Famous Assistive Technology

When you see a phrase of “assistive technology,” what comes to you? I know almost all of you know “Braille,” ”Tenji” in Japanese. It’s a special set of characters for the blind. Now let me tell you about Braille. Braille is made of six points, and you read it by touching. Braille was invented by a French man, Louis Braille in 1825. Since then Braille has been widely used over the world. In 1901, in Japan, Braille was used for the first time on a Japanese newspaper. Now you see Braille at many places. However, there may be little understanding of Braille, and we should consider the blind and Braille.
