The TiM project intends to develop and to adapt computer games for visually impaired children. In order to achieve this project a library which allows to easily access Braille displays was developed. This library provides all the functions needed to write text on the Braille display, directly raise Braille dots as well as receive the keys pressed on it. On top of that this library works with many different types of displays and is freely reusable
