The LEGO Group to pilot LEGO® Audio & Braille Instructions

One of the pilot rollout sets is: 41365 LEGO® Friends Emma's Art Studio

The other three sets included as part of the pilot rollout are:
  •   11001 LEGO® Bricks and Ideas LEGO® Classic  
  •   60207 LEGO® City Sky Police Drone Chase
  •   70821 The LEGO® Movie 2™ Emmet and Benny's 'Build and Fix' Workshop!
-  Pilot phase is August 28 – Dec 31

  Inspired by blind entrepreneur, Matthew Shifrin, the new building instructions will help children with vision impairment build and learn through play using LEGO bricks
-  How it works: AI software translates LXFML data (LEGO Exchange Format Mel Script) from visual instructions to text based descriptions for braille and voice commanded instructions.
-  The instructions will be available in all markets through as a free service for all and new instructions are expected to launch on the same site early 2020.  (See more images of the process there now.)
