RoboBraille- Not just about Braille

Filed under: Inclusion — kevhickeyuk @ 11:25 am

RoboBraille is a free service which allows anyone to email a document to a dedicated email address and, within a few minutes, get a reply which includes the text converted into a chosen format including;

  • MP3 file of the text being read out
  • Daisy format audio book
  • Braille, either 6 or 8 dot, full text or contracted

The following video shows how it is being used at Lancaster and Morecambe College, not just with visualy impaired learners, but also with dyslexic learners and those learning a foreign language.
