Principles of Creating and Using Special Devices and Braille Displays for the Blind People

Ilhomjon Hakimovich Siddikov, Bakhodirjon Arabboyevich Mullajonov


Mankind has been innovating and creating new devices for its own convenience. But blind people faced a number of challenges in using such modern devices. Special devices have been developed and are being developed to prevent this. This article explores the working principle of specially designed devices for the blind, including a Braille display device and a special software called a Braille translator. Block diagrams and operating principles of system components are given. The special program focuses on how information that is converted from flat to Braille is displayed on the device. The article concludes with the creation of special libraries for people with complete or partial visual impairment, using specially designed software and devices as a system. These libraries are different from other libraries in terms of cost, which is the reason why such libraries are the optimal option.
