Product Description: 

Taptilo is a braille education package that combines a hardware device and software to provide immediate tactile and audio feedback for students learning braille. It features interactive software and personalization features, as well as a library of available content for wireless download.

Main Features: 

  • Enables braille educators to personalize their lessons, play games with students, track learning progress and reinforce learning through various activities. 
  • Includes self-study activities with interactive audio instructions that allow students to practice on their own under minimal supervision.
  • Wi-Fi feature enables users to download and install new educational content directly to their device.
  • Incorporates learning by movement, touch, and hearing. 
  • Dynamic audio and tactile guidance allow children to follow along with games and activities on their own.

  • Uncontracted and UEB available. Option to temporary switch word back and forth from uncontracted to UEB to practice at the same time.
  • By connecting multiple devices to one app, educators have the option to teach many students at once.
  • Information from the blocks is transmitted and displayed on the braille display and app screen, and vice versa. Taptilo can check the spelling.
  • Large size braille, about five times larger than standard braille, provides improved tactile experience for young children to increase finger strength and agility. Large size braille is also helpful for senior users with weakened tactile sensitivity.
