Braille Sonar and ICEB Agreement
I know it has been a while since I’ve updated this forum but that doesn’t mean nothing has been going on. We’ve finalized an agreement with the International Council on English Braille (ICEB), the makers of the Unified English Braille code, to use their official documentation in the Braille Sonar App.
Note from the Lead Developer: Hey, David here. Braille Sonar is a commercial product; it does cost money and I appreciate your purchase but it is also serving a very small niche. As a result Braille Sonar is mostly a labor of love and has yet to demonstrate its ability to be a self-sustainable product. Let me put that in another way; I’ve never drawn a salary from the proceeds. That doesn’t mean its going to die; but it does mean we’ll be looking for alternate revenue ideas or sponsorship or whatever. If you have any ideas fell free to share it. I personally use Braille myself and I think a tool like Braille Sonar needs to be out there, should be out there, and needs to be out there. Braille Rocks! And Braille literacy is important. If the NFB, ACB, or APH come out with a resource just as good or even if they wanted to buy us an press on I’d be happy to close up shop but till then thank you for your support. –David Ward
