According to the WHO “285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 million have low vision.” that is 4% of the world’s population.
This project aims to motivate people all around the world to stand by a good cause and be part of a revolutionary change that will make life of visually impaired (mainly blind) people better.
We are developing a video platform that is going to have videos which either have a written description or audio track giving detailed additional information. Having this, blind people may watch the video listening to the additional narration, or reading it with a Braille display. We wish this platform to became a “tool of independence” which means blind people will be able to find informative and entertaining video content without additional help sitting next to them. In case of deaf-blind person we could also call it an additional gateway to the outer world.
