Phone Shell for the Blind / Product and Application

Phone Shell for the Blind
Phone Shell for the Blind

Unlike the ordinary people, the blind people use the smart phone by using Screen Reader apps to read the contents on the screen. The problem is that when the blind people drag their finger around the screen, there is no tangible boundary to help the blind know the location of their finger on the screen. The phone shell divided virtually into 6 parts by the embossment dots and lines on the right side of the shell. The user will touch the embossment dots and lines by their left hand, and the tactile feeling will help them form a grid of screen in their mind. t will solve the original problems and cause less misoperation and confusion.
