LEGO introduces audio & braille building instructions

– A whole new way of building LEGO models

LEGO Audio & Braille Building Instructions makes the popular LEGO building instructions available as audio or text for braille readers giving blind and visually impaired children of all ages an opportunity to play with LEGO sets and to enjoy the developmental benefits of creative LEGO play experiences.

Please find the first 4 LEGO Audio & Braille Building Instructions on this site. More building instructions are underway and will be added regularly .

LEGO® Audio & Braille Building Instructions are developed by the LEGO Group and the LEGO Foundation with scientific support from the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence and partners from the blind community. CereProc proudly supplied the voice for this application.

We believe children learn best about themselves, others and the world around them through play. A growing body of evidence supports that play is fundamental for children’s positive development and an essential way to develop the breadth of skills, such as critical thinking, creativity and collaboration, needed to thrive in today’s fast-paced world.

LEGO Audio & Braille Building Instructions allow blind and visually impaired children who appreciate hands-on, minds-on activities to experience the joy of building and pride of creation through their hands. We believe that the audio instructions may also be beneficial for sighted users contributing with an added value and clarification to the well-known building instructions.
