BRAILLE SIGNS NO LONGER REALISTIC OPTIONS
FEWER THAN 10% OF VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE IN THE U.S. READ BRAILE
The capability to read Braille is shockingly low — slightly more than 8% of legally blind children read Braille, fewer than 10% of visually impaired people in the U.S. read Braille, and just 10% of blind children are learning it.
Cultural changes in how the world uses technology, coupled with the limited Braille-reading population, necessitate a new way of thinking and navigating the world, and especially population concentrations of cities and the challenges to move around them successfully. AWARE is the smart answer to Smart Cities … the answer to today’s urban environment and its many opportunities that are now achievable because of the AWARE solution.

For the visually impaired and the population as a whole, AWARE by Sensible Innovations allows cities to offer a completely new level of experience. Sensible Innovations shows cities how, and helps them to become more inclusive, more welcoming, and a more engaging total-life experience.
From providing pedestrians with the ability to make better informed — and therefore smarter — and safer decisions when navigating cities and crossing streets, to enhancing the confidence of the visually impaired to experience the world without limits, AWARE is the cutting edge of smart cities indoors and outdoors navigation.
