Abstract

To ease the life of visually challenged, help them use the most out of the smartphone.

Outline

Smartphones have becomce an essential element of our lives and we can’t imagine a single day without them, our roti (tinyowl/dominos) kapda (myntra/mywash) makaan (housing) comes from it. The simple things like ordering a pizza, or booking a Uber is so easy for us. BUT if you think from a blind person’s perspective its not so easy rather too difficult. We are changing this with our smart accessory which can be plugged in to any android/ios device and can help operate the phone without using the touchscreen. Enough said, We’ll demonstrate if you let us in :)
