There’s a new smartphone interface designed especially for the blind, reports the BBC. Powered by Android, the suite of applications are “designed by the blind and visually impaired, for the blind and visually impaired,” as Glenn Tookey, the CEO of Sight and Sound Technology, the company behind Georgie, explains. In some ways Georgie is like Siri, in the way that a virtual personal assistant is central to the experience. But there are loads of features that are either unique to Georgie, or have been given new pride of place in the interface.
