According to the World Health Organization, 2.2 billion people globally have some vision impairment. Blind and vision impairment children can undergo poor motor, language, and cognitive evolution, bringing lower levels of educational success. Our proposal aims to design and develop a one-character refreshable braille display that is affordable and easy to use through the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Reading is essential to acquire knowledge by allowing an affordable form of reading based on braille, a handy tool for teaching and training blind and visually impaired people can be reached.
