New Technology Enables Many-Fold Reduction in the Cost of Refreshable Braille Displays
John W. Roberts, Oliver T. Slattery, D W. Kardos, B Swope
By analysis of the primary cost factors for existing refreshable Braille displays, a team at NIST has pioneered a new technology that can reduce the cost of the electromechanical portions of a Braille display by an extremely large factor, and the overall cost of a Braille display by as much as a factor of ten. A massive cost reduction in displays creates a new model for the purchase and use of Braille displays by individuals, by employers, and by educators. Readability and user control issues are are addressed. It is hoped that this technology will open a significant new market for low cost, high performance refreshable Braille displays.
