New Perkins SMART Brailler Makes Learning/Teaching Braille Easier
Perkins Products, a division of Perkins School for the Blind, introduces a new product with the potential to transform the way people who are blind learn to read and write.
The Perkins SMART Brailler® provides audio and visual feedback coupled with hard-copy output so that everyone can learn braille together — students, teachers, parents, adults losing their vision.
Local Man Discovers Benefits of Adaptive Technology
Richard Phipps, a real estate agent in Mattapan, lost his vision years ago to glaucoma. As a result it became more difficult for him to use the computer and to perform his job. Fortunately he was introduced to speech recognition software at Perkins. The software allows him to use his computer simply by speaking, making it possible for him to continue working in the profession he loves.
Perkins Products provides caring and experienced consultants to assist in making choices on devices that can best help you. They offer adaptive solutions for people of all ages who are blind, and visually impaired or learning disabled. Support and training is provided for family members, friends, teachers, support staff and businesses seeking accessibility in their workplace.
