Galaxy Core Advance new accessibility accessories

Samsung’s mid-range offering the Galaxy Core Advance soon to be accompanied by some accessories to help enhance the accessibility options which are already offered by Samsung’s devices.

Per Samsung’s own site

• The Ultrasonic Cover allows users to detect obstacles and navigate unfamiliar places by sending an alert through a
vibration or TTS feedback. By holding the Cover in front of the user, it can enhance a visually impaired user’s awareness
of their surroundings by sensing the presence of a person or object up to 2 meters away.
• The Optical Scan Stand positions the device to focus on printed materials, automatically activating the Optical Scan
application, which recognizes text from an image and reads it aloud to the user. The Optical Scan Stand is particularly
useful when a consumer is alone, automatically initiating the application to read text as soon as paper is sensed on
the stand.
• The Voice Label assists users in distinguishing objects by allowing them to make notes and tag voice labels easily
on-the-go. With NFC technology enabling a seamless connection to their smartphones, users can record, stop
and access their notes. This feature can also help a user distinguish how to use electronics by allowing them to
record a short explanation.

It’s really great to see how affordable technology can help make life better for people. The Voice Label seems like a very useful and much needed new idea, and I can see libraries and schools adopting the Optical Scan Stand for visually impaired students, very cool! Anyone know someone who could benefit from one of these accessories? Let us know below!
