In the video below, a smiling young girl plays independently with Taptilo, creating words by pushing the braille dots up to make the desired letter then placing the correct braille tile on the top row of the Taptilo device.  This adorable child then presses the button on the right side of the device to hear if she is correct.  In the kitchen, the mother uses the Taptilo app on her phone to send one word at a time (“play” and “easy”) to the device.  On the iPhone, the word is displayed in both print and braille dots.  When the word is displayed in braille on the bottom row of the device, the little girl’s face lights up.  She immediately begins to duplicate each braille character and creates the word.  In the next scene, the mother encourages the little girl as they sit together on the floor in the family room playing Taptilo together.  The next scene is a teacher using an iPad and four young students who are blind are sitting at a square table, each with their own Taptilo game.  The teacher sends the desired word (“learn”) and the students intently create the word in braille using individual Taptilo tiles.  One student accidently knocks a Taptilo tile onto the floor.  The teacher picks up the tile and places it in the student’s hand.  The last student scene shows a student’s hands pushing in the Taptilo braille dots to create a letter.
