ELIA

Independence Through Literacy
ELIA Life Technology spent the last 12 years developing a new tactile alphabet for the blind that can be learned, read, and retained eight times more efficiently than braille. Once this revolutionary alphabet   was validated, ELIA then partnered with Humanfactors to develop a series of assistive products that will deliver the tactile ELIA alphabet to the visually impaired, enabling independence through literacy. Based on this unique working relationship, Humanfactors has provided not only design, engineering, prototyping, and software development services, but has also helped ELIA write - and win - several government grants needed to help sustain research and development.
