Blind Keyboard

The blind and those with motor skill impairment, may find it easier to communicate thanks to Once and the University of Barcelona.  They have developed a keyboard that virtually eliminates the normally found QWERTY keys and replaced them with 8 keys with Braille indicators.  We’re not sure how they will formulate complete words with only 8 keys, but we think it may mimic those keyboards found in court rooms (i.e. stenographers).  The keyboard is expected to cost between $700 and $950.
