Calling for Beta Testers - Audio Only Apps for the Blind
Hi AppleVis ,
My name is Chris Maury, I've been an AppleVis member for about a year now; ever since I found out that I was losing my vision to Stargardt's macular degeneration. Over the last year I've started an accessibility meet up for people with disabilities and people who work on accessibility here in Pittsburgh. I've also started training seniors who are losing their vision on how to take advantage of the accessibility features on Apple Products.
The work I'm most proud of however is an App I've been developing which is designed to be consumed entirely in audio. What Papa Sangre has done with games, we've tried to do for other types of applications. Our first app is an audio-only shopping client for Amazon.com.
We're ready to start beta testing, and wanted to reach out to the AppleVis community first to see if anyone would be willing to help out.
Interested in getting early access and providing feedback? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send you instructions on how to download the free app.
We really appreciate your help.
When you say audio only? I'm a bit confused. I shop on the amazon website and using the amazon apps and it works, but then again I could just be very confused in what you say audio only with amazon. it does sound interesting though.
I agree. I'm an advanced user, but even if I were not, I'd want to practice with th keyboard. Please consider adding key board interaction as well, so you can get a higher number of consumers who might want to get your app.
