Blind man invents device to surf better on the web

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2016-09-06 18:15

About the solution

Being blind himself, Chris thinks that the options for the blind to navigate on the web could be improved.

"To use a screenreader you have to understand the visual paradigm - what dialogue boxes are, radio buttons and all the rest. That's the wrong model as far as I'm concerned - what you really want is a model that is intrinsically orientated towards a one-dimensional audio stream”, he explained.

The gadget was produced in two stages: The first consists of building an interface that can be used by people who are already familiar with computers; The second phase consists of an interface for the visual impaired, for people who are not used to working with computers.

Chris, who is also an entrepreneur, founded A-Technic, an assistive technology charity.
