Fosi has created a prototype iPhone case that would help the blind make better use of the iPhone. The silicon case features a selection of modified bas-relief buttons that correspond to menu items, and is thin enough for the screen to register touch.
It works with an app store application to allow accessibility functions like text to speech and moon type tactile alphabet keyboard. Fosi says this allows the iPhone to keep functions like multi touch and finger flick scrolling intact.
While advances in digital technology and text-to-speech software over the past few years have offered the visually impaired access to communications and information like never before, the invisual may just be the solution for the blind when it comes to smart phones of the future.
