Tablets to grasp for blind people: Kristina Tsvetanova & Slavi Slavev at TEDxAmRing
Easy access to information and simple communication possibilities offered by mobile internet via tablets and smartphones have fundamentally changed our everyday life. However, blind or visually impaired people can only use this technology to a certain extent. Voice recognition and voice response can only help so much. This barrier for people with impaired vision is eliminated by the winner project Green Vision: With a haptic surface for tablets, the content of mobile internet literally becomes comprehensible. Online information on tablets can be illustrated with a newly developed lamination for screen displays, by means of Braille.
