Gadgets for the Visually Impaired
Devices for those with visual impairment – The world is a beautiful place. There aren’t enough words, emotions, and actions to express how lovely the universe is. While there are those who are able to see and appreciate the wonders of this earth, there are those who sadly can’t. Whatever circumstances that gave them their situations, the world of technology has made it perfectly sure that gadgets and other accessories are still going to be accessible for the impaired, specifically those who are visually impaired. Here then are some gadgets that will help them get through things easier, smoother, and more efficiently.
Most of the gadgets below are suited for kitchen use. To begin with, there is a talking microwave that can be purchased these days. In this device, there is a knob that will allow the one using it be guided accordingly with the timer. A button with a speaker is also installed that will literally speak to the user and guide his/her with the amount of time needed to use the microwave. Brands like Walmart, Hamilton Beach TEMO, and LG Microwave are just some that cater to the visually impaired and their needs. Something closely related to this would be talking kitchen timers. For example, a good brand like Tel-Time will serve as a cooking timer to help you when you are cooking and/or baking but the main different lies in the device actually talks to you. Aren’t all of these convenient and accessible? Now, let’s move on to liquids. Other gadgets for the visually impaired allow them to drink and be merry without having to worry about consequences or problems that may occur in the long run. An example of this would liquid level devices. What happens with these gadgets is that they are hanged on a cup or the tip of the glass where one sips. When the glass or container is already nearing the top, a sound will let you know that it’s time to stop pouring. In relation to liquids, there is also such a thing as the Lazarus Wine Label, Lazarus Wine brand that has the Braille alphabet embedded on the bottles themselves thus giving them their world of understanding wine. Lastly, for general plug-ins and electrical use, Braille Electric Plug Tags are here to save. For the visually impaired, it can get quite difficult trying to find out which plugs to use with the risk of accidents and the like. Here, every plug tag has a symbol and abbreviation that explains every device. Examples of this would be: the plug tag has abbreviations like “TV” for television with the television picture and Braille alphabet version of the word “television”. Yes, the world is beautiful place and gadgets like these make life more comfortable, easier, and brighter for the visually impaired.
