ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Smartphones have become easier for everyone to use, except for the visually impaired.  With the increase in 3D printing technology, the OwnFone is printed with the contacts names in Braille so that visually impaired customers can know who they are calling at all times.  Currently, the phones are only available in the U.K., but a kick starter campaign  is planned to bring the devices to the United States.

The devices sell for around $100.
