Braille Apps

There is a number of Braille applications (apps) available for smartphones and tablet devices. These apps are designed to allow people with a visual impairment to use Braille to operate their device. Due to constant changes in the app market, it is not possible for Assist Ireland to list all the Braille apps as individual products in this section.

We recommend searching the Apple Apps Store or Android Apps Store to browse the apps available, and if necessary or possible, speak with an occupational therapist or speech and language therapist for advice on what apps might be suitable for you.

If you are new to this technology and would like to know more about smartphones and apps and how they can help you, we have an Information Sheet Apps for People with Disabilities and Older People which explains what they are and what they can do. There is a section within this document entitled Braille Apps that gives examples of Braille apps.
