DIGIT-EYES AUDIO LABELING SYSTEM ADVANCES INDEPENDENCE FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Digital Miracles, LLC, is pleased to announce a major advancement in
assistive technology for people who are blind and visually impaired.
Audio Labeling System has been approved for sale on the Apple Apps
Store. As of June 23rd, the millions of people worldwide with
substantial vision loss
can begin downloading the iPhone application to recognize and label
the important items in their lives.
Reasonably priced at $29.99, the Digit-Eyes phone app is a powerful
tool that fits into any budget and life- style, turning challenging
tasks into easy,
safe activities. The Digit-Eyes system gives users a simple way to
make custom labels for everyday items and it identifies packaged
software with the iPhone, the Internet, home computers, printers, and
inexpensive off-the-shelf labels. People of almost any visual ability
can now put
groceries away and grab the right prescription bottle independently.
“This is the most exciting product I’ve worked on,” says Nancy
Miracle, president of Digital Miracles and software engineer with 40
years experience. “The
limited functions and high cost of existing assistive devices just
seemed wrong, so our objective was to develop a product that performed
better than any
comparable technology and offer it at about 10% of the price.
Combining the need for identification with a natural, powerful and
robust tool like the iPhone
made the project irresistible.”
With Digit-Eyes, users can print custom text labels or record audio
labels that they make by scanning specially coded labels and speaking
into their phones.
They attach the labels to household items, and the messages are played
back whenever the codes are rescanned with their iPhones. This
Digit-Eyes app can
also scan manufacturer codes (UPC, EAN, ISBN) and say what’s inside
the package after checking the vast Digit-Eyes product database. Each
over five hundred hours of information and can be used just about anywhere.
“This product is amazing! By labeling leftovers with their contents
and date refrigerated, I can determine if my dinner will be edible or
not. Next, I’ll
be labeling my jungle of AC adapters so I’ll never again have to guess
what they all go to. The ease of use and flexibility of the process
make it an invaluable
Randy Builder, Seattle, Washington.
The first public display of Digit-Eyes is at the National Federation
of the Blind convention in Dallas, Texas, July 4 – 7, booth B113. The
moves to the American Council of the Blind convention July 10 – 15 in
Phoenix, Arizona, booth #41. Attendees can experience the use and
capability of the
system with hands-on demonstrations. Details, explanations, and
examples will be available at both conventions, or immediately on-line
Digital Miracles, LLC, the parent company of Digit-Eyes, is a
Texas-based corporation that develops customized software solutions.
The Digit-Eyes Audio
Labeling System was created by a team of engineers, software designers
and members of the visually impaired community.
