MozBraille is an extension to transform Mozilla or Firefox to a stand alone accessible Internet browser designed for blind or partially sighted users. With mozBraille you don't need a third party program like a screenreader. MozBraille offers its users three displays or outputs :
- A Braille output on a braille terminal,
- Text to speech output,
- A big characters view.
MozBraille is a part of the VICKIE project at http://inova.snv.jussieu.fr/vickie. The main goal of this project is to create an electronic school bag for visually impaired children. The main output is the Braille and the less important is the text to speech because students have to listen to their teacher ;-).
Note : MozBraille is a beta version, so there are lot of features to add. At the moment, blind or partially sighted users can't use this software alone.
