It’s not called a smart phone for nothing

I am so pleased that ordinary technology can help VIP’s (visually impaired persons). well done to Cape Town Society for the blind and Vodacom.

if you are a technology explorer maybe you can help a short-sighted friend to turn on the accessibility function on their smart-phone. Just don’t leave them  with the changes until you are sure that it really is suitable for their needs. Remember too  that the cell phone cameras can be  used as a magnifying glass to read things like the electricity meter or temperature on the oven dials. I even use it to see weight measurements on the kitchen and bathroom scales.  My phone is like a hand -held eye …is that why they call it an iPhone? 🙂
