netidee projects: mobile Braille keyboard

Oskar is the first hardware keyboard for visually impaired and blind smartphone users.

The development of the keyboard was supported by netidee, the funding program of the Internet Stiftung.

Erich Schmid (Braille expert) and Johannes Střelka-Petz (developer) are the team behind Oskar. The mobile hardware keyboard is attached to the back of a smartphone and can, thus, be used while standing or walking. The keyboard has 8 mechanical keys with Braille, as well as two additional keys for the thumbs.

With Oskar, visually impaired and blind smartphone users can write 4 times faster than on a virtual smartphone keyboard.
