I'm participating in devpost.com's Hackathon: "The PartyRock Generative AI Hackathon by AWS".
My project for this hackathon aims to help teachers teach blind children to read and write.
A few years ago I took a Braille course at a school for the visually impaired in my city, I was inspired by the teachers' determination to teach Braille to their students. I realized that there was a need for more accessible tools to help them in this process. Based on this experience, I decided to create Write Braille, an application to facilitate the conversion of text to Braille.
This application has some bugs related to the user's language. Braille translation is not accurate according to the grammar of the user's language.
I invite and hope to count on the collaboration of educators, developers and accessibility experts to ensure that the application evolves and meets the specific needs of teachers for teaching reading and writing to blind children.
You can feel free to use and improve "Write Braille" as needed.
