Visually Impaired people To Access Mobile Devices Through a System of Digital Texture

| | posted on:Resources, Visual impairment

Cell phones are becoming important parts of our everyday life. They also have become more powerful with every new model. Unfortunately, those cell phones don’t have features to make them accessible among the blind and visually impaired community. Tactile is a future application of electrotactile technology that engages the sense of touch by sending digital information as beats of electricity. There are conductive pins beneath the multi-touch screen that sends beats electricty to simulate physical pressure from the nerves of the user’s fingertips. Each pin acts as a pixel of digital texture that can change dynamically to allow the blind and visually impaired people to navigate menus and other complex features.
