New Translating Braille App


Braille Scanner is a new app built by Aaron Stephenson who wanted to put his Braille knowledge into practice. The app can translate Braille by taking a photo of Braille on paper to translate to text only using your phone.


The app uses a combination of machine learning and vision, and the current model uses Unified English Braille, grade 1. Currently, the app includes features such as Braille/text to speech, export translated text, export braille characters, and more. The developer is hoping to add more features in future updates of the app.

The app can be downloaded on the app store here. (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/braille-scanner/id1517369095) The developer is open to receiving any feedback to ensure that every translation is correct and accurate to make the next machine learning model even more precise.
