Speechlabel is an app for people with a visual impairment to create a more accessible environment.
The app has been made fully accessible for the built-in screenreader on Android and iOS devices. This allows people who are fully blind to still use the app.
The app started as a research project to find out how you can create apps which are accessible for users with a visual impairment. It turned out that the proof-of-concept was a success itself, and it was decided to continue building the app into a complete platform.
Users can add their own labels to objects by scanning barcodes or NFC-tags
The app can recognize 13 different kind of barcodes, including the ones on product packaging
However, some objects do not have a barcode printed on them. The solution: users can purchase products inside the app which can be attached to objects.
