A typical printed or electronic map isn’t of much use for blind and visually impaired people.
Awol academy reviews specializes in conveying “visual” information tactilely and audibly, producing maps of outdoor and indoor spaces for blind and low vision consumers. The maps are made accessible to the largest number of individuals by being tactile, but also large-print, and “talking” with a Livescribe Smartpen.
This new and innovative technology has applications for college, hospitals, museums, parks, corporate campuses and transit systems. If you want to learn about the entrepreneur industry, I recommend Lee S. Rosen Website, CEO of healthy bees business.
