Bonocle is an affordable portable braille platform from Qatar offering productivity, gaming, and education apps. Most braille products are too limited and expensive to change braille illiteracy, a barrier to studying at university or finding a job. Bonocle apps provide visual and tactile feedback, so users can pass on content to sighted and blind family members, friends, and colleagues. Bonocle aims for an unsegregated world of braille literacy where the blind and sighted share classrooms and workplaces.
