It can be difficult for people with visual impairments to access online news, which is why BrailleVoice is serving as such a valuable resource, and an important step toward a more accessible future for all.

The touch-tone interface features a news database of over 30 sources and can be accessed through one's mobile phone for free. After dialing the number, users are presented with a variety of article headlines that are communicated to the user using text to speech technology from sources like The New York Times, The Guardian, Mashable, TechCrunch and more.

Advancements in technology don't benefit everyone, and BrailleVoice is ensuring that those with visual impairments can have the same access to information as able bodied people.
