Breaking News English has published an interesting story about a teenager who has made an inexpensive printer for the blind.
A 13-year-old has made a cheap machine that helps blind people read. The machine uses Braille – small bumps that people touch to read the letters. Machines that make these small bumps into words, sentences and paragraphs are very expensive. They usually cost at least $2,000. The teenager, Shubham Banerjee, made a new Braille writer from a Lego robot kit. It costs just $350.
If the project succeeds, it will make it easier and cheaper for many more blind people to use a Braille printer. As always, the story at Breaking News English comes in many levels and with many activities for students and teachers.
