Hello everyone, welcome to another post in my Confessions of a Blind Guy series.
days ago, a visually Iipaired Musician friend of mine, you may know him, Jammin Joe Buck?. He asked,
Why Don’t They Make A Google Glass For The Visually Impaired?.
For those of you who don’t know what Google Glass is. It’s a piece of wearable technology. It’s a pair of glasses with very special features.
Basically, it’s a bit like a phone, except, instead of a screen, the information, is displayed, right on your glasses lense. In theory, if you wanted to read the news, it would be straight in front of your eyes.
There are many different apps, including, news, weather, sport, social media, and many more. You can even shoot pictures and videos, with your voice.
The only trouble is, like many of Google’s futuristic technology, it’s not really that visually impaired orientated.
Getting to the question at hand The main reason for them to not cr eate a visually impaired version, is because, well, I don’t really know, I have my own personal thoughts as to why.
Mine are. They just don’t see the market for it, plain and simple, money.
It’s also my thoughts on why Android, isn’t as visually impaired as Apple. Google, aren’t as interested in the visually impaired market as Apple.
Google are more interested in making cheap tech, and selling it at a low price. Which I suppose is good. Hopefully eventually they will jump into the visually impaired market, rather than dipping their toe in.
If and hopefully when, Google launch a Google Glass for the visually impaired, i’d hope they’d have a few key features.
For one, voiceover. You know the famous screen reader from Apple. Or at least something like it. Also maybe an inverted colours, or black on white feature. Hopefully they’ll be a zoom feature, but as I said, the main thing is IF. If they make one.
But they are my thoughts on why there isn’t a Google Glass for the visually impaired. Why do you think they haven’t yet?. I would love to hear what you think.
