A braille library for Python

Project description

braille - 1st Place winner at HarkerHacks 2018

A Python module that supports conversion between text, image, speech, and braille for developers.


In the world, 36 million people are blind, and I wanted to create a project that would make blind people's life easier. I was searching for a Python library to assist braille technology, but I found nothing. So, I decided to create my own library to assist developers create projects that integrates braille technology.

What it does

With this library, developers can simply install and import this library and perform conversions between text, image, speech, and braille.

Installation 🛠

Make a project directory $ mkdir YOUR_PROJECT_DIRECTORY Install the library from GitHub git clone Make sure you work within this directory. Your importation of the braille library may not work if this installation occurs in any other folder
