The Solution

Annie™ is the world’s first self learning braille device for the visually impaired.

Annie enables a student to self-learn to type and read in braille. Through the companion app parents and QTVIs can monitor real time progress of the student, schedule tests and home work. Local authorities can evaluate, analyze, compare and remedy a group of students through Annie’s cloud platform.

India's First Smart Class Solution for the Visually Impaired

Rajyakrit Netrahin Madhya Vidyalaya, Ranchi has 24 visually impaired students aged between six and eighteen years. They were being taught braille for about an hour by two teachers everyday. A student would receive only five minutes of personal attention.

Students were spending the remaining time either waiting or attempting exercises with minimal feedback. This teaching method was inefficient for attaining the required learning outcomes and demotivated both the teachers and the students.

This is the story of many schools in India.

To address these pain points, India’s first Braille smart class was deployed in Ranchi.
