Introducing Perkinput for iOS; the Newest Text Entry Alternative to the Keyboard for Braille Users

In this podcast, Antonio Guimaraes gives us a quick demonstration of Perkinput, a new app which enables you to enter text on your iOS device without using a keyboard.
Perkinput is based on the Braille keyboard, where you simultaneously press down with the fingers that correspond to the dots for the letter you want to enter. Unlike the Braille keyboard, however, you enter text with just one hand. You tap the screen twice to enter one letter instead of pressing down with two hands at once. After you enter something in the Perkinput app, you can send that text in an email, a text message, or simply copy the text and paste it in any other application.
