Kindle for people who are blind

The Canute 360

The Canute 360British firm Bristol Technology has plans to launch a Braille e-reader for blind people this year to enhance their reading experience.
The reader known as the Canute 360 will be the world’s first multi-line braille e-reader. It will be possible to download any text that has been translated into braille format into the device.
This is being considered a huge innovation in the field of braille technology since braille in its printed form can be inconvenient and non-portable.
Bristol Braille Technology says that the final prototype of the Canute 360 will enter mass production this year and will be priced similar to a high-end laptop.
