About Us

We strive to be a pioneer in accessible
and affordable innovations for the vision
impaired and the deafblind to lead
independent, fulfilling lives.

Awareness can be sightless.

Dot was formed upon the foundations of making everything accessible to everyone. Our team will be relentless in our quest to actualize our concepts and ready to use as your daily products.

Our focus is on you.

The company was founded upon the ideals of improving and innovating:

  1. 01 We saw numerous libraries and bookstores without braille literature.
  2. 02 We realized that public infrastructure relied largely on audio cues and alienating the deaf-blind.
  3. 03 We felt the expensive and bulky braille technology.
  4. 04 We sensed the evolution of flat surfaced information relays without guidance for the vision-impaired.
  5. 05 We located the inaccurate and misplaced braille signs that were difficult to locate and utilize.
    Thus, we came together, working to make an honest impact for you.

Reaching the unreachable

Our mission won’t stop with the Dot Watch, in fact, it would only pave the road to a bigger and better future.
With the technology in our Dot Ecosystem, it will be possible to pursue an entire spectrum of education:
from simple braille acquisition to advanced tactile-graphic representations.

We’re also aiming at an affordable braille display for the developing regions with our Dot Mini project.
Our expeditions to Kenya have gifted us with enormous insight to strategically plan for those who require customized assistance. This ultimately lead us into the next generation of tactile reality - the Dot Pad project, which will be the embodiment of
Dot’s soul - to genuinely make a multi-layered mark in history.

Both the Dot Mini and the Dot Pad will be designed for universal literacy.
We predict that the widespread improvement of global braille literacy will directly result in upgraded lifestyles across the board. From education, entertainment, and employment, let’s make them truly available for everyone.

The Team

We believe that connected minds bring forth immense changes.

Our team is constantly learning, adapting, and evolving – held together by the ambition of shaping an inclusive future.

The image shows the Dot Watch with a white background. The watch face points upward towards the 1 o’clock position with a silver magnetic mesh band.
The image shows three Dot Watch package boxes laterally. One on the left is laid flat and faces upwards. One in the center shows the width of the box, laid like a book, showing the side of the box. The last one is laid flat on the face, showing the white rear panel of the box.
