dbGLOVE is a wearable device that digitizes several existing touch-based alphabets, such as Malossi and Braille, to enable blind and deaf-blind people to use all the features of a mobile device, to communicate with others, and to interact with the world. Users wear the device on the left hand, and type messages on the palm, like on a keyboard. Tactile pulses can represent control signals and be used to open applications, control appliances, and send commands that can be displayed on the screen, translated into speech, or transmitted over the Internet. Messages can be displayed on the screen to the normally sighted, they can be translated into speech, or transmitted over the Internet. Replies are sent to dbGLOVE, which translates them into vibrations that simulate touch cues representing letters over the hand, allowing the user to read the message.
