SENSEE

Visually impaired often do not have the opportunity to enjoy reading the same materials (i.e. braille format books) with sighted individuals in a family setting together. SENSEE offers products that both the sighted and the visually impaired can enjoy reading together because their books have braille and normal characters plus pictures on the same page.

SENSEE braille conversion and special printer produces books both braille and letters. Drawing books and Tactile books can create a learning environment where the visually impaired can touch the shapes of objects and feel the shapes, objects, and pictures so that they can also learn how to draw. Additionally it appears SENSEE can customize learning materials.
