Marking sentences with a highlighter is a common practice during reading, allowing the convenient location of key text at a later time. Doing so is not as feasible for those who read Braille. Highlight Ring is an adhesive-backed tape and dispenser that allows the visually impaired to mark a portion of Braille for later reference. The dispenser is worn on the index finger, near the fingertip, so the tape is dispensed just below the line of Braille. The tape has been designed with three types of perforations, which create textures that allow the reader to distinguish different portions of text.
