Computerized Braille

Canadian innovator, Roland Galarneau, was born blind with 2 percent vision. He created the Converto-Braille, a computer/printer that read and translated text punched on perforated tape, then embossed it on paper using a braille typewriter. His company produced its first braille books free of charge for visually impaired students. The front of this tile reads “Canada Day” in Braille.
