LEGO unveils braille bricks to help visually impaired children learn braille

LEGO hopes its new product will be a fun way for kids to learn while they play.

Author: Andrew Weil, Tegna

Published: 8:38 PM MDT April 24, 2019

Updated: 8:38 PM MDT April 24, 2019

LEGO is testing a redesigned version of the iconic childhood toy that is meant to help blind or visually impaired children learn braille in an engaging way.  

It's a big mission, given that only 10% of blind children in the U.S. are currently learning to read braille, according to a report by the National Federation of the Blind.

<div class="ad__nojs-placeholder" style="height:90px;border:2px solid #e6e6e6"></div>

LEGO unveiled its Braille Bricks on Wednesday at the Sustainable Brands Conference in Paris, France. 

According to LEGO's announcement, the Braille Bricks will be molded with the same number of studs used for different letters and numbers in the braille alphabet, but will still work like original LEGOs. 

Each brick will also have the letter or character it represents printed on it, to make sure everyone knows which are which.

The LEGO Foundation has unveiled its Braille Bricks, which it hopes can help blind or visually impaired children learn Braille.

LEGO

The LEGO Foundation said its piloting the grassroots project in collaboration with blind associations from Denmark, Brazil, UK and Norway. The first prototypes are currently being tested in those countries.

The LEGO Foundation has unveiled its Braille Bricks, which it hopes can help blind or visually impaired children learn Braille.

LEGO

It's a project that has a special impact for LEGO Group Senior Art Director Morten Blonde. He suffers from a genetic eye disorder that is gradually making him blind and only has 4-degree sight left, but isn't letting that limit him. 

"Experiencing reactions from both students and teachers to LEGO Braille Bricks has been hugely inspirational and reminded me that the only limitations I will meet in life are those I create in my mind," he said in LEGO's press release.

I haven't done this but if the page is more or less typical, you should see something related to playing the video such as a play button.  Do you see anything when you start at the top of the page and type b to move by button?

I may check the page with another computer later.  the one I'm using is too old and slow to determine whether the video can be played.  But the text you saw, sent by another member, is on the page.  I don't know how you look at web pages but if you can find the text, it may help you in other situations.
 
I'll look at the page again and explain how to find the text without having to read most of the page before the text starts if you wish.

Actually, it's a video and also a text.

And, on a not much different note, anyone would know, using NVDA, how can I?? exit the video player once this is open?
Because, not only on this page but on many others, if I open the video player, tipically embeded to the text, I get stuck on that player. The only workaround I found for this is to shift tab all the way back until I reach the text again.
However, I'm sure there should be another way, perhaps a more "elegant" one.
So, anyone can help me with this question? :)

Try holding alt and while doing so, press the space bar.  A menu should open.  A close item should be in the menu and you will get to it much faster by up arrowing.  Press enter on close and see if it closes the player or the entire page, including the browser, if that's the only window or tab opened.

Doing this, it would close the tab. At least it was what it warned me about.
But I answered my own question by accident :)
Reading NVDA's User Guide to help another person with a question, I saw that the command to exit from embedded objects is CTRL+NVDA+Space.

The only problem with it is that while it really closes the player, it also puts you at the very beginning of the text. But I think that we can't do anything about it as this is the?? NVDA way of being...

Anyway, thanks a lot :)

I don’t know if there was a play video thing, but probably there was.  But I don’t know what it would have played, since I didn’t see anything about braille, only stuff about coklier implants, and how people are living with them.  Pam.

There may have been something that caused the link not to be followed correctly.  There was a lot of text on the correct page, the same text as another member sent the list.  If you just pressed enter on the link, perhaps somehow it wasn't followed properly.  Copy the address to the clipboard and paste it into the address bar.  that's how I followed it. 
 
Also, I believe the video may have played by itself, though to be sure, I would have to try the link on my much faster computer.  I may do that.  I On my very slow old computer, I didn't see a play button but I did see a progress bar.

I don’t know if there was a play video thing, but probably there was.  But I don’t know what it would have played, since I didn’t see anything about braille, only stuff about coklier implants, and how people are living with them.  Pam.

I haven't done this but if the page is more or less typical, you should see something related to playing the video such as a play button.  Do you see anything when you start at the top of the page and type b to move by button?

Okay then, video.  What and where?  I only said article because that's what
the person who sent it said.  Pam.

So, what is this story, and where is it?  I don't see it anywhere on the
site you gave.  Pam.

I tried the site using Chrome on my fast machine.  The player isn't accessible, but I could make it play by fololowing procedures that wouldn't be necessary if it were properly accessible.  There is an unlabeled item you have to press enter on and after that you have to do other things.  However, I couldn't get it to play the report I wanted.  If I had spent time moving from report to report, maybe it would have but at this point, I don't know if the video is still there.  But the text still is, so try my suggestion and see if you are on the page with the correct text.

There may have been something that caused the link not to be followed correctly.  There was a lot of text on the correct page, the same text as another member sent the list.  If you just pressed enter on the link, perhaps somehow it wasn't followed properly.  Copy the address to the clipboard and paste it into the address bar.  that's how I followed it. 
 
Also, I believe the video may have played by itself, though to be sure, I would have to try the link on my much faster computer.  I may do that.  I On my very slow old computer, I didn't see a play button but I did see a progress bar.
