How can a blind user draw and read molecular structures of organic compounds?

The MOLinsight web portal is a gateway to software that can be integrated in strategies for blind users to process chemical structures - www.molinsight.net

It includes the free NavMol program - a molecular editor for visually impaired users. The NavMol program enables the user to navigate the structure of a molecule atom-by-atom, providing information about neighbors of each atom and bond types. It also allows structures to be changed by adding or deleting atoms and bonds. This is a very simple application, which only uses the MS-DOS or Linux shell command-line interface. Blind users interact with the program via the keyboard and text-to-speech software (such as JAWS), or Braille hardware.

If you are interested in the project please contact navmol
