The gesture input is transmitted to the gesture input receiver 510, and the gesture input identification unit 521 converts various gesture inputs including horizontal or vertical gestures into digital signals and informs the operation processing controller 520. The arithmetic processing control unit 520 determines whether to output a screen, a message or a voice stored in the memory 530 according to the digital signal. The arithmetic processing control unit 520 may be a CPU or an AP. The gesture processor 513 includes a gesture / Hangul converter 524. The memory 530 is referred to by the digital signal of the gesture input identification unit 511, and based on the referenced result, the gesture / sign converter 514 uses the input gesture as a sign including letters, numbers, or special characters. Convert to The converted code is converted into voice by the voice converter 540 and output by the voice output unit 550. On the other hand, the code converted in the gesture input is transmitted as a message by the code / Hangul transmitter 560. For the sign input processing, the electronic device 200 includes a sign input identification unit 571 including a sign input receiving unit 570 and a braille input identification unit 572 and a braille / Hangul conversion unit 574. A code processing unit 573 is further included. The code input receiving unit 570 may receive Korean or English or Japanese or German or Chinese or Spanish or Portuguese or Russian or Hebrew or Hindi. Also, numbers (1, 2, ...) and special characters (@, #, #, $,%, ^, & ,, *, (,),-, +,?,>, [,], { ,},:,:, ", \, ~). The code input identification unit 571 may further include a numeric input identification unit and a special character identification unit for identifying the letters, the numbers, and the special characters. The braille input identification unit 572 of the sign input identification unit 571 is converted into a digital signal, and the result is transmitted to the arithmetic processing control unit 520 and the sign processing unit 573. The processing unit 573 includes a braille / Hangul conversion unit 574, and converts the braille input to Korean by referring to the hash table 531 of the memory 530. The result is converted into the voice conversion unit 540. After the voice signal is converted, the voice output unit 550 outputs the voice signal by the voice output unit 550. The gesture input and the code input may be simultaneously processed by the arithmetic processing control unit 520.

Referring to Fig. 15, the hash table 531 of Fig. 14 is shown. In the hash table 531, one of six braille combinations corresponds to Korean initial consonant, neutral vowel, and final consonant. Due to the characteristics of Braille and Hangul, there is a limit that one-to-one correspondence cannot be achieved. When entering Hangul consonants with one of the six Braille combinations, it is necessary to distinguish between the initial and the final Hangul. In addition, when inputting a vowel of Korean, it is necessary to distinguish between a short vowel and a double vowel. The hash table 531 converts Braille into Korean by using a hash table to distinguish between Korean initials, neutrals, and verticals corresponding to each Braille. The hash table 531 shows the horizontal addresses (1, 2, ..., 23) and the vertical addresses (1, 2, ..., 6). For example, when the vertical address is 1 and the horizontal address is 1, the input of the braille “ㄱ” may be recognized as “a” of the Hangul Jongjong and converted. The distinction between the initial and the finality of the braille input may be determined in the order from the first note input of the confirmation input receiver 231 of FIG. 2 until the next confirmation button is input. After inputting the Hangul Hangul characters, the Hangul characters received by the input of the confirmation input receiver 231 may be confirmed by voice. "Second" of the hash table means initial property, and "parent" means vowel. The hash table may be constructed in other combinations. The hash table can be used to convert Braille to English or Japanese or German or Chinese or Spanish or Portuguese or Russian or Hebrew or Hindi.

Referring to FIG. 16, a method of operating the electronic device 200 of FIG. 2 is described.
