The new app Braille Scanner uses machine learning technology to translate braille on paper to spoken or written text.
No joke, this is real!!— Aaron Stephenson (@azzoor) March 31, 2022
Very excited to show off my latest passion project!!
Welcome to Braille Scanner.
Braille Scanner allows you to scan braille paper and have it translated to text. It uses CreateML and Vision to do the heavy lifting.
Now available on the App Store.
Use the app to take a photo of a piece of paper with Braille on it. In seconds, the text will be translated. The current model uses Unified English Braille (UEB), grade 1. Additional transcribing models are planned for future updates.
Along with text, the app can also use text-to-speech to speak the results of the scan.
You can export translated text and even the Braille characters.
Braille Scanner is a free download on the App Store now for the iPhone.
You’ll need iOS 14.7 or later installed on your device.
