Novartis, the Swiss pharmaceutical company wanted to help visually impaired people in their everyday life – so we come up with a smartphone app idea helping them in their following daily needs.
Color recogniser - Reading out loud the colour of anything in front of the phone
Money recogniser - Reading out the value of a banknote (Euro and Dollar).
Contacts - Users can add voice and sound effect and organize their contact according to their needs.
Magnifier - This function helps users to read the smaller prints in various magnification levels.
Timer - Using the vibrate feature of the phone, you can feel the remaining time with your fingertips.
Weather - Current and following days’ weather with easy pictograms, color coding and audio guide.
The new object recognition function
Throughout the development, we’ve consulted the association for blind people several times, that’s why we came up with the special color coding and user interface. The application can be used in several mode (blind mode, voice guidance, vibrational, high contrast) so it is suitable for various needs. We built in 7 languages both in audible and written form. The application uses voice guidance, so it actually speaks to the disabled users ensuring that they always know in which section are they currently in. The application has six section that helps users in their everyday normal life like a Swiss army knife╙:
As our client, Novartis we do believe that this app can make the life of blind or visually impaired people better.
