Matthew Shifrin Inspiring Lego for the Blind
Today, thanks to Matthew LEGO® is making their play experience more accessible for kids who are blind or have vision impairment by announcing the LEGO® Audio & Braille Building Instructions.
Matthew Shifrin, a 22 year-old blind entrepreneur, along with a childhood friend, first started typing the instructions into a computer when he was 13 years old. A screen reader would translate the instructions and over time they transcribed 20 LEGO sets.
