Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!

4Blind is a company that researches, develops, creates, and produces innovative engineering solutions. They help meet the needs of the “blind and deaf-blind communities by expanding their opportunities and eliminating the barriers that people with disabilities face in communication, education, employment, transportation, and independent living.”  One of their available products is the HaptiBraille Communicator, which is a communication device for individuals who are deaf-blind.

The HaptiBraille Communicator is a simple, easy-to-use device that can be used almost anywhere.  It gives users who are deaf-blind a voice.  Even people who have never interacted with an individual who is deaf-blind will be able to speak to them with this device.

Other features include:

  • Simple and easy-to-use compact device
  • Breaks down barriers in communication
  • Supports several languages
  • Weighs around 5 oz
  • Battery lasts about 6 to 8 hours on a full charge
