3. Seeing an opportunity – Paige Connect

Braille has helped millions of blind and partially sighted people to read, but the traditional form is written manually by embossing a braille writer. The writing cannot be stored, shared, or understood by people who cannot read braille, “which is unacceptable in this digital age,” according to Sergio Gosalvez (pictured).

He set up a project to solve this challenge – Paige Connect – which has been declared winner of the Groundbreaker Prize for 18 to 25-year-olds. It will receive £60k funding. Gosalvez has developed an app that allows parents to read a translation of braille, helping them to support their children’s learning as they would a sighted child.

This could be life changing for the 29,000 blind pupils in the UK, two-in-three of whom are estimated to be educated in mainstream schools,” he told Positive News.
