The blind will love Nokia: New Braille to SMS

If you are blind, reading text messages can be somewhat difficult; Nokia Labs aims to change that and has been busy working on a Braille based text message reader which will be compatible with Nokia touch screen smartphones reports The Register.

Nokia Labs have created an application that can render received messages as Braille characters and then utilises the vibration of your mobile phone to convey those Braille character to the user.

We have a video for your viewing pleasure below which shows the experimental Nokia Braille reader in action, and the Nokia Braille application is now available free of charge via Nokia labs.
