The Virtual Laboratory (VLab) is focused on providing same-time different-place group-interactions, allowing full real-time virtual-interaction of voice/video/data information of the Internet, communication systems, and multimedia equipment and facilities for vision disabled persons. The VLab interactive-monitor uses piezoelectric technology for graphical display and includes a novel braille markup language (BML) interface with the wireless application protocol (WAP) and the hyper-text markup language (HTML). The BML interface enables conversion of all types of existing web sites and facility/equipment control information to be displayed on the VLab interactive Braille monitor.
