Internet Brail.
    #1556076 - 05/17/03 01:26 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)


lets talk about ways to make the internet accessible to the blind.

i dont know if there is possible way of applying Brail to the internet.

I think that more research should go into technology that develops devices that can stimulate the visual cortex. Almost like virtual reality.

almost like a psychedelic.

HAHAHAHAHAHahaha, what will think up next

The best way to live
is to be like water
For water benefits all things
and goes against none of them
It provides for all people
and even cleanses those places
a man is loath to go
In this way it is just like Tao        ~Daodejing

In the film "Sneakers" with Robert Redford, there's a bling guy who can use a computer terminal by putting his fingers on a little board which pushes up against his skin simulating braille. I don't know if it real, but I don't see any reason why not.
