The conceptual 'Barrier-Free Braille Board' has been designed as an upgrade to traditional braille writing accessories to help users seamlessly compose text at their leisure without feeling limited by their equipment. The braille board works by having text written in reverse (like traditional braille boards), but boasts an additional plastic frame that will keep the paper in place. This also allows users to seamlessly slide the sheet out of place to read what they've written as they go to allow for a more intuitive, user-friendly experience.
The conceptual 'Barrier-Free Braille Board' is the design work of Yang Decai, Chen Dayu, Hao Taotao, Li Peijie, Tanzou Xinran, Yang Defa, Yang Xi, Yang An, Yang Changyuan and Zhu Zhifang. It is the winner of the 2019 Red Dot Design Concept Award.
