An electromechanical "smart pen" was designed, developed and tested that can be used to teach blind people to print and write. The pen consists of a plotting device controlled by a personal computer. The user selects a letter from a library of letters and shapes stored in memory. The smart pen guides the student's hand through the tracing of the letter a specified number of time. The pen also allows the user to enter custom shapes and store them in memory.
