SixBlindKids – David – Blind and College Bound – Ep 4 – Braille Device and GoFundMe Update

David, who was born blind, is heading off to college for his freshman year and is trying to obtain a modern braille device. Our state department of blind services has finally offered him a braille display, that Dad explains is like a old flip phone in comparison to a modern smart phone.

David has a GoFundMe campaign to get a very modern braille notetaker for college, the Braillesense Polaris. Here is the GoFundMe campaign link.

In the last part of the video, David demonstrates the Brailliant braille display he was given by the state, and also demonstrates the braille input keyboard and Voiceover capabilities on his iPhone.
