SMS for the Blind

Nokia have developed a SuperGenius SMS Braille reader for the Blind and Visually impaired for cellphones.

Nokia Braille Reader gives SMS for the blind and visually impaired. It captures received SMS messages and brings them to the foreground for reading using Braille and tactile feedback.

The application has been developed in a joint project between Nokia, Tampere University and the Finnish Federation of the Visually Impaired.

We celebrate Nokia’s dedication to the disable and we honor their service to innovation.

Nokia certainly proves the divine notion of a “Scientific Aesthetic” — their phones are technically beautiful — even for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
