A project log for Knobo

An Intuitive and Compact Device That Helps the Visually Impaired Learn Braille.

I envisioned Knobo as a HID (human interface device) that will take full advantage of computer speech-to-text technology to aid the Braille education, rather than harming it. 

After over a year of development, I've successfully created a HID that is compact, easy to use, and manufacturing ready.

As you all probably know, Knobo is a finalist in the 2019 SuppleFrame Hackaday Prize. I hope that with the funds from winning the prize, I will be able to start mass producing this product to bring it to the hands of visually impaired learner around the globe.
