© 2016 IEEE. The developed project aims to introduce an electronic device, in a blind people community, an electronic device, capable of generating an autonomous learning of Braille reading system. In addition, it was decided to develop this project, taking as reference the current rate of 0.3% of visually impaired people in Ecuador, the government's willingness to support projects that involve social inclusion; and the University commitment, to improve the lifestyle of people with disabilities. The device centers its operation in the use of the senses of touch, sight and audio, through the implementation of micro servos, mp3 DfPlayer module, low brightness leds and the bluetooth module HC-06 respectively. The electronic board Arduino Mega, is responsible for receiving the input signals and activate the peripherals, which generate the learning of the Braille code. The project is implemented in the "Unidad Educativa Claudio Neira Garzón" of the city of Cuenca, where users are able to learn the characters of Braille language, but not at the same pace, taking into account that two of the three subjects, who were tested, are people with vision and the third person is a nine years old student who attends the second year of basic education in the institution.
