Mobile App for the Blind

posted on Feb 24, 2012

There is a new Mobile app on the market designed to help the blind and visually impaired to send text messages. The system is called Brailletouch and should be on the market in the next few weeks.


Brailletouch will be free to download, its makers say, and it is hoped it could even become an "eyes-free" solution for fully-sighted people who want to text while visually pre-occupied with something else.


Are we at Ableize are pleased that the mobile phone industry has finally recognised this issue for blind users as the system has proved to be of great benefit to the deaf and hearing impaired people being able to communicate through text rather than voice.


Full details of the story can be found on the BBC news site located here
