Notes: For 285 million blind and visually impaired people worldwide, only 3% of all text content is available in braille.

Dot Translate is the first AI braille translator working at near-human accuracy. Trained with millions of highly accurate translation samples, made accessible through an intuitive web interface, Dot devices and other digital braille devices. Formats and sources cover a wide range: type, e-pub, pdf, txt, doc, rtf, html, voice and even translating whole websites. Existing braille translation software works by applying a small set of pre-defined rules, which doesn’t cover many cases. Our approach is different: We use a machine learning based system. This is important, because due to the nature of Machine Learning and a feedback tool, usage increases the accuracy. The key was obtaining large amounts of training data and users. To obtain data, we partnered with stakeholders and content owners, to increase users, we made our product free to use, challenging existing software pricing at up to $700.
