Teaching the Sighted to Touch & Feel a Bit More

Event: CascadiaJS 2018

Speaker: Faddah Wolf

Tags: [Accessibility, React.js, React Native]

Abstract:

Braille is becoming more and more ubiquitous in many common spaces — airports, malls, libraries, etc. A college in Oregon needed an App built to help teach the friends & family of those who are sight impaired how to read Braille. Faddah Wolf will go over what accessibility options there are in common Mobile OS's, how he created a React Native six-key-input keyboard for Braille and how you can contribute to this Open Source project.
