It takes much time for the visually impaired to read Braille. If they forget preceding content while reading long sentences, they have to read the whole sentence over again. Snail is an electronic voice converter, whose pressure-sensitive touch pad is rolled over the Braille for sound outputs. This provides easy and fast reading and ability to play the recorded content later. It has Bluetooth output and self-generates power when rolling. A wiper is attached between the revolving part and the handle, keeping the Snail clean.
