After attaching this device with the computer the visually challenged can read any document on the computer without any difficulty. Each word of the computer documents will automatically be converted into brail script.

Took only 2.5 months to develop the device, Priced at Rs.700

  • It took only 2.5 month to invent this device. The MPS student invented this device that worked on screw mechanism. He invented this device just before his board exams.
  • The machine was invented in January while it patent was published in February. It will help the visually challenged people to perform various tasks over the internet.
