Hable One Wins Braille Pluim 2024 and is Covered on National Television


On World Braille Day, Hable One received the “Braille Pluim 2024” as an accolade recognizing significant contributions to the visually impaired community. This award, announced by Vereniging Onbeperkt Lezen, celebrates Hable's innovative creation, the Hable One, a device that transforms the way visually impaired individuals interact with smartphones through braille.

The recognition extended beyond the award, as National media picked up the news and extensively covered it. Amongst others, this includes NPO 1 radio,  the NOS news at 6 and 8PM and RTL 4 news. One of the highlights in the media attention was how fondly different customers spoke about the product and how it has transformed their lives.

About Braille pluim 2024

Vereniging Onbeperkt Lezen awards the Braille Pluim to draw attention to the importance of braille for people with visual impairments. The award is given annually on World Braille Day, January 4th, Louis Braille's birthday.

The Braille Pluim initiative, originating from the Braille Education & Promotion members' workgroup of Vereniging Onbeperkt Lezen, recognizes the enduring relevance of braille, which dates back to 1829. A braille-reading member of the association remarked, "Without braille, I would feel illiterate.”

Motivation by Onbeperkt Lezen: “Hable deserves the Braille Pluim particularly because this start-up has utilized braille to make new technologies, specifically smartphones, more accessible.

Young people are also enthusiastic about it. Moreover, Hable is seriously committed to involving users in testing to further improve their product.”
