Apps that help the deaf-blind communicate with smartphones
Apps created by the NGO, Bapsi, Bidirectional Access Promotion Society, are helping the deaf and blind communicate by using vibration on their smartphones as a medium.
Bapsi aims to support those people who have limited access to information because of their disability and when the information is not presented in a user-friendly way.
The technology uses the Morse code to replace letters with long and short sound or light signals. For children with multiple disadvantages, touch is available.
Among their apps are PocketSMS, an SMS app that uses vibrations as in Morse code to read text and Narangi, a slate for deaf and blind children, where the drawing vibrates once the user finishes drawing.
Bapsi’s applications are free to download from the Google Play Store.
