If you have no trouble getting work to be brailled far in advance from your academic braille student’s teachers, you still might like this app. But if you ever find yourself having to braille things at the last minute, it will be indispensable! Use your phone to quickly take a photo of the work to be brailled, use the OCR conversion to extract the text into a DOCx format, and upload it to Google Drive or other cloud storage options so that you can easily translate and braille a document the moment you are back in front of your computer. Better yet, add the DOCx or text formatted copy to shared cloud storage that your student can access from a computer, tablet, or notetaker him or herself.
