A “RAY of Light” on Independence for Blind and Visually Impaired People

Project RAY demonstrates the power of advanced wireless smartphone technology with the creation of the RAY device: an always-on, easy to-use, multi-function, mobile phone with a user interface optimized for eye-free interaction. Poised to become the new gold standard in accessibility tools for blind and visually impaired people, the RAY solution uniquely enhances the typical Android smartphone. Wireless Reach and Project RAY are collaborating with Israel’s Central Library for the Blind, Visually Impaired and Handicapped to enable people with visual impairments to make calls, send messages, recognize objects, engage in social networking, access remote assistance, and use leisure and entertainment services.
