FingerReader, la bague qui scanne un texte et le lit à voix haute | L'Atelier: Disruptive innovation

FingerReader, la bague qui scanne un texte et le lit à voix haute | L'Atelier: Disruptive innovation | Handicap et nouvelles technologies | Scoop.it

" Dans un monde où les individus lisent et s’informent de plus en plus sur des supports numériques tel que les liseuses Kindle et tablettes, les personnes malvoyantes se retrouvent fortement désavantagées. Mais un nouvel outil qui lit à voix haute n’importe quel texte devrait bientôt permettre aux personnes aveugles d’obtenir une vaste quantité d’information du bout du doigt, sans avoir besoin d’un texte en braille. Le dispositif nommé FingerReader, vise à remplacer les logiciels audio-visuels qui peuvent se révéler être assez limités et inexactes."

Diana Petschauer's curator insight, February 23, 2014 9:27 AM

A comprehensive article with many resources. Assistive Technology, often overlapping with educational technology, certainly is supporting ALL students universally in education, as well as adult individuals to access employment, the community, and daily living activities. High tech options or low tech options, modifications, and so many free and low cost options available for leveling the playing field and supporting access in all environments.

Jaqueline Urania MoraesVarjao's curator insight, August 11, 2014 5:20 PM

Absolutely fantastic resource!

Diana Petschauer's curator insight, November 1, 2013 11:37 AM

"The technology is called “tactile rendering of 3D features,” and an early version of a rendering algorithm has already been developed by engineers at Disney Research in Pittsburgh. The process behind it is, predictably, both technical and confusing, but the basic premise is that small, electronic pulses can trick your fingers into perceiving bumps and texture, even if the surface is actually flat."

 

This research and technology is going to be phenomenal for offering further access to those who are blind/ low vision and others who benefit from the tactile feedback.
