voice beacon / voice tag for the blind

voice beacon

At home, blind people mainly rely on touch to find a sense of direction. Not only blind people would knock over things easily, but also be hurt by sharp objects.
Voice Beacon is an intelligent product designed for the blind.
The user only needs to speak to the tag and the voice fragment will be recorded. An appropriate reusable veneer is selected to attach the tag to items in the home. When the blind person repeats the recorded voice fragment, the tag will provide audio feedback to help the user find their way quickly and safely.
