Azerbaijani IT company sets markets for selling Braille teaching devices
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 25
By Huseyn Veliyev - Trend:
Azerbaijani IT company BIONIX Tech will raise $30,000 to produce an export batch of Braille Teach, interactive devices for learning Braille, the founder of the company Rashid Aliyev told Trend.
Aliyev noted that currently, financing issues are being considered at the High-Tech Park LLC.
The produced devices will be exported to the USA, China and India.
Braille Teach is designed for visually impaired children, and using these devices they can learn Braille alphabet via a simple and convenient method. The device has voice support: it is enough for the child to press the necessary button, for example, the combination of the letter "A", and the device will sound it. Accordingly, the device reports errors in case if wrong buttons are pressed. Braille Teach has games that make it easy to learn Braille.
Braille Teach devices support five languages (Azerbaijani, Russian, English, German and Ukrainian). Language support, as Aliyev had earlier said, will gradually develop as the device enters new markets.
Braille Teach devices were donated to pupils of boarding school No. 5 in Baku.
