We have added a Microsoft Excel format spreadsheet to our documentation section which gives information on almost sixty braille actuation technologies that we have found during our research phase of the Transforming Braille project. 

For each technology, the spreadsheet gives a contact name, website, brief description of the technology involved, and information on the inventor. From the list of locations you will see that this research activity is very much a global endeavour.

Please note that the information contained in this spreadsheet is correct to the best of our knowledge. Any corrections should be sent to the project manager and we will update the spreadsheet as soon as possible.
