Purpose of the study: In the race for performance improvements and extensive features that make lives easier, usability and reach-ability of the technology have taken a backseat. This is especially so for an abled section of our society. Here the researchers have formulated an android app for visually impaired ones.
Methodology: The goal of the research is to develop and verify the efficiency of an android application at helping the visually impaired to connect to the mainstream by providing an alternative method to perform general operations on an android device such as making calls, sending and reading text messages, and saving reminders or notes independently
Main Findings: The major problems faced by the visually impaired ones are is texting, calling, note-making whereas with the help of this application everything becomes very easy to operate.
Applications of this study: Study of this application suggests us to deploy it at each and every visually special user so, that they can be benefitted with this.
