About the solution
With this app, the user just has to turn on the voiceover in the smartphone’s accessibility setting and tap their phone until he hears a restaurant of their choice, then double tap when they hear what they're looking for. The same thing goes for deciding what to order.
This way, visually impaired people don’t have to rely on others to order for them or ask Braille menus.
According to John, this is the first app of its kind. "This is the very first app on the market where it contains restaurant menus blind people can actually use”, he said.
Another advantage of this app is that it can also filter through ingredients for anyone with food allergies.
The developer is trying to get more restaurants on board. Panda Express, Carvel Ice Cream, Orange Leaf Yogurt, Tony Roma's, Pizza Rustica, Happy's Pizza, Taco Cabana and Spicy Pickle are some of the American restaurants that signed up with Tappy Menu.
The app is available for iOS and Android.
