Technology in the Future

Hey. I'm Devika, and I'm an eighth grader working on my History Day project. I pretty much found the information I needed, but I have had difficulties finding sites about the future for the blind. My topic is Braille and the Blind. I want to have a section dedicated to After Braille. For this, I want to find out about some more modern of technology or inventions that suggest advancement over the past years since Braille was invented. If you have any info at all that you think may help me on my project, email me at Thank you so much for your time!

That's in a collection called "Assistive Technology" (, which discusses lots of high-tech ways to gain access to information.

Good luck on your project!
