Abstract: Aiming to facilitate the learning process of the Braille System, we developed an educational application to assist people for learning this system. We developed the application initially in Portuguese, it was named as BrailleApp, and it was designed for mobile devices, which uses the Android Platform. All accessibility standards were implemented to make it as accessible as possible to all people, helping visually impaired people and not visually impaired in the learning process of this language. In this first version, the help to learning Braille is specifically to not blind people, although, with some difficulties, it is possible a blind person use the application. In future versions we hope to improve and facilitate the use of this application by blind people too. It is important to emphasize we do not intend to replace the conventional methods which assist in this task, but to be an application to complement the already existing techniques. In an empirical analysis, the results sh ow that the application was positive in the sense of system requirements, functionalities, and accessibility. We expect BrailleApp will be another option to assist users in the teaching-learning process and contribute to the social integration of visually impaired with technologies. (More)
