Creative Person of the Week

18 May

A while back, I invited everyone to let us know about blind people you know that are doing interesting and creative things.  This was submitted by a volunteer in Myanmar (Burma):

Aung Lwin Oo from Myanmar a young man (totally blind) who invented (developed) a software.  He is skillful in using computer and his software is “Braille to Myanmar” “Myanmar to Braillex”  It is like “Duxberry English-Braille/Braille-English” software. He invented it in 2010. It was launched in 2011 and widely used for academic texts and other books for visually impaired persons in Myanmar.

Other sighted people in Myanmar had developed this kind of software. However, they did not include any visually impaired person in the process. As a result, it is not as good as that of Aung Lwin Oo.
