App that makes smartphones accessible to the deaf & blind
October 20, 2017
A new app has been launched in Australia that makes any iPad or iPhone into an accessible phone for people who are deaf and blind or have low vision.
Called OpenAccess Captions, the app directly connects callers via a live captioner so that phone conversations can be read as they happen.
It has been developed by Conexu Foundation, a non-profit organisation that creates and promotes technology to give people who are deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired more communication choices.
The app can also connect through Bluetooth to a braille display so the captions can be read by people who are deaf and blind.
