Literacy rate correlates to employability and affects the economy.
Annie enables a student to learn to read, write and type braille on their own. Through the companion app a teacher can monitor real time progress of the student, schedule tests and homeworks. Local authorities can evaluate, analyse, compare and remedy a group of students through the cloud platform.
Annie was launched globally during the VIEW Conference, Birmingham, in March, 2018. The device garnered great interest from the attendee QTVIs who received Annie with enthusiasm after using it themselves.
Having been recognised as one of the best practices in teaching Braille, the Thinkerbell Labs team has been invited to conduct a workshop on Annie for QTVIs at the Wales Assistive Tech Day at Cwmbran on 28th September, 2018.
Annie’s most distinguished users are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who learnt to type ‘George’ in Braille!
