TechBridgeWorld Braille Writing Tutor Robot

The Braille Writing Tutor (BWT) robot teaches users how to write, practice writing, and be quizzed on letters, words, and numbers.

As the user writes on the electronic slate with a stylus, the BWT provides immediate audio feedback by repeating the written letters, numbers or words. It also guides writing and corrects mistakes. The immediate audio feedback serves as a diagnostic tool for instructors, giving them a real-time understanding of what concepts the user did and did not grasp.
