Braille : Java Glossary


Braille  Braille
The dotted logo above says Google in Braille, a system for the blind to read using raised dots. Special printers can emboss paper. Readers provide a bar with raised pins to display a line of text. The type has to be quite a bit bigger than for optical use. The paper thickness and the embossings themselves make the bundled documents very bulky. Another way of letting the blind to use computers is voice sythesizers that speak extremely rapidly.

Sun uses the term accessibility to refer to Java features that make it easier to use for the blind or people motor control or other disabilities.
