Description of App


NaviLens is a high-density artificial markers system for long distance reading.

The tags generated by this system are designed in order to be readed from a long distance, without the need of focussing and even in motion. This makes them useful for blind and low vision people. All you need to do is to point the camera of the device to a tag in order to quickly read its contents.

The application has a new sound system with which a blind person can locate the label in the space with precision, without the need for headphones.

Notice: While we are installing this signage system in different locations, you can download sample labels in the same application.

We have spent 5 years to create this new technology. We will be happy to receive your impressions and comments about the system.

For more information please read at the quick help, included in the application.
