A new app called EasyConverter Express has been launched which aims to help blind and partially sighted people in developing countries access information in braille, large print and audio formats. Users will be able to produce braille, large print, MP3 and DAISY talking book formats from Word files.
The app is available free for people living in developing countries. Users in other countries have to pay for the software. Here is a short video which explains what the free app can do.
It has been developed by Dolphin with support from the Royal National Institute of Blind People, and with grant support from Google.org as a gift to the World Blind Union and International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment.
