BEIJING: Chinese scientists have developed and tested a prototype electronic notebook for people who are blind that is designed to be cheap to manufacture.


The e-notebook, called B-Notes, allows people to take notes or memos using Braille or by recording speech. It is similar in size to a mobile phone.


B-Notes makes use of technologies developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), including translation software.
