About Braille Institute Technology and Software Programs

Braille Institute’s Digital Programs are focused on two goals: improving the lives of our existing clients and delivering services through digital channels to individuals who cannot come to one of our centers. We have developed programs using technology and software made for people who are blind or have low vision to leverage the digital world.

Mobile Apps for the Blind & Visually Impaired

Our popular mobile apps (VisionSim, ViA, BigBrowser, and TRP) are used around the world by the visually impaired, teachers and medical professionals.

Live Streaming of Blind Technology Events

Our Live Streaming of educational seminars are available to viewers in real time and are also archived online for future use as is our entire audio/video library.
