Software for people - building apps for visually impaired people

A session at SmartDevCon 2013

  • Bolesław Tekielski

The main topic of the presentation is developing software for visually impaired people. We want to show our entire way, starting with "why", going though "how" and continuing with"when". We begin with "why", describing our motivation for the project and its purposes. We then describe how we have used the research conducted as a part of iVirtualEye POIG project and its outcomes to create a lever to the success and how iOS mobile platform makes (almost) perfect platform for such task. Then we smoothly move to "when”, revealing details of project timeframe, including initialisation, initial research, production and finally delivering to the market. After this introduction we describe challenges that we met during the project, including technology constraints, issues with getting through the Apple review, target group expectations. We also present some of our experiences of launching the application to the market, building position, brand awareness, promotion and efforts to gain the market share, based on two of our recently launched applications, SeeingAssistant-Move and SeeingAssistant-Home. We summarise the presentation with our plans for the future, including creating the combined cloud - mobile software ecosystem, a platform for tools and applications dedicated to improve the quality of life of users with sight impairments.
