This week we discussed the availability of mobile phone devices for vision impaired people.
Matt specifically discussed the assistance provided by phone manufacturers in the form of ‘Easy Mode’ and ‘Accessibility’ options. We also discussed addons such as ‘Georgiephone’ and screen readers.
There was also some discussion on the development of active screens that actually change shape to provide haptic feedback.
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha was specifically mentioned as it provides Easy Mode and Accessibility features such as Magnify Glass, Torch and easy to read buttons.
Listen to the stream to find out more and I have attached a photo of the Alpha in Easy Mode.
