Researchers from Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) launched the BrailleEasy keyboard application that makes Braille typing faster and more convenient in smartphones. The keyboard can be used both by left and right-handed users, and it may be utilized for different features that include browsing through the internet or sending messages.

The application is available both in English and Arabic, and is suited to fulfill additional instructional tasks through a tutorial mode that supports users to teach and learn Braille. The application may also be utilized by persons with limited movement that may type easier using the Braille keyboard than other traditional options. The application will be open sourced to allow further improvements and adaptation to more languages.
