The Universal Phone is a mobile that anyone can use, including the visually impaired.

The number 5 key on the Universal Phone has a little dot to allow blind users to remember the placement of the keys while dialing and sending text messages.

You might ask, how do they read text messages? Well, the Universal Phone can turn the texts into braille writing so users can feel their way through their different messages.

Unfortunately, this mobile is only a concept, but it would be great to see something like this out on the market. Stats for Braille Mobiles Trending: Older & Chilly
