New Braille gives dignity and empowerment back to blind students by allowing them to navigate indoors on their own.

New Braille will allow blind students to always be confident of their location. When it's time to move, simply enter the desired destination – a classroom or professor’s office – and receive instructions along the way.

New Braille can go places GPS can't - including underground. By collecting a database of the unique magnetic fingerprints of each meter of space in a building, New Braille pinpoints a location by sensing the electromagnetic interference from the steel and concrete structures around it. No extra hardware needed.

Using New Braille is easy and intuitive

  • The student specifies their desired destination

    Users may specify a professor, a room numer, or a class. The location options are endless.

  • The app guides the student

    The app gives turn-by-turn audio and low-vision compatible instruction. Stairs and other hazards are alerted.

  • Professors, schools, and students succeed

    As campuses become more accessible, students simply do better. Everyone reaps the rewards of first-ever autonomy for the blind.

Disability is not a 'brave struggle' or 'courage in the face of adversity'...disability is an art.

It's an ingenious way to live.
