AbstractNot Available Problem Definition: Mainstreaming has spawned a critical loss of teaching resources for braille music. This circumstance impedes full participation in school music programs, hindering literacy and equal access to information. Objective: Develop a set of software functions to support the use of a hardware prototype of a braille computer keyboard overlay, developed by TACK-TILES Braille Systems, LLC, for the IntelliKeys keyboard from IntelliTools. Make improvements concurrently to the design of the hardware prototype based on field testing. The system will allow the user to press an individual braille character shown on a Tack-Tile block mounted securely on the keyboard. The key press will trigger a musical tore, a verbal cue or sound effect. Use of this system will be integrated into an introductory set of lessons on music braille. These lessons will be tested by educators and blind music students at the beginner level.
