App to Improve Accessibility for Visually Impaired

‘Georgie’, a new app for Android, aims to make life easier for the visually impaired

Whether it is getting off a bus or reading a menu, a new app, ‘Georgie’, aims to make life easier for the blind or visually impaired.

‘Georgie’, the app for Android devices enables people with little or no sight to accomplish daily activities that could be difficult for them.

Co-founder of Screenreader, a nonprofit based in Peterborough, England, that developed the app, Roger Wilson-Hinds, points out that, “The great thing that attracted me to (creating the app) was this notion of gaining confidence, and also having reassurance that you could press a button and get help if you were lost.”
