Let me introduce Rivo 2, a new Bluetooth keyboard and handset designed for the blind. Composed of 12 buttons in the middle like a telephone keypad, there are 4 buttons on the left, 4 buttons on the right, and 3 side buttons. The size is like 10 credit cards stacked on top of each other and it weighs 55g.
It provides functions for VoiceOver screen navigation with sound feedback, typing text, making and receiving phone calls, generating touch-tones for telephone services, remote for audio, music, and voice recognition like Siri. These functions together help the blind use iPhone without touchscreen gestures. People are using Rivo all the time to use their iPhone, and they are even using their iPhone in the pocket or bag while walking with a cane in one hand.
