0402-“DAISY”

2011 年 5 月 18 日 水曜日

DAISY is initials of Digital Accessible Information SYstem. It is the audio e-book which is readily accessible and opened for free to an ordinary audience. This can create multimedia books which play letters, sounds and pictures at the same time. Those who have difficulty in reading benefit writings all over the world and the electric publication on the web. Unless they are taken proper measures, they can get less information and knowledge than others. In school, we hope that multi DAISY editions of textbooks advance the ability to understand. For this reason, we can give all the students impartial education.

0413-GPS for the blind

2011 年 5 月 10 日 火曜日

Let me introduce Kapten Plus Voice Activated GPS for the blind. Designed for the blind and virtually impaired, this voice controlled GPS unit is the perfect solution for people on the go. This device can tell you your precise location by voice, give real time voice description of what’s around you and even save destinations and trips to use again. People with visual impairment always tell where they are, no matter where they are traveling by using this device. I am amazed at a complete vocalized user guide. But this is not a Japanese version but a US version. I hope that a Japanese version will be on sale and become widely used.

9062-Screen Reader (2)

     Let me explain about the “screen reader” for everyone. When the blind uses personal computer, it is difficult to operate the mouse pad like the normal person. It is impossible for the blind to operate without help. Screen reader is software that reads out information displayed on the screen. Screen reader judges the pause of sentences. And screen reader reads out the simple phrase of Chinese character.  There is screen reader to read out the operation, too. Today screen reader is an indispensable thing for the blind.

0419_HAL2

2011 年 5 月 4 日 水曜日

I’m going to talk about HAL.

It’s the first cyborg robot in the world and we can wear it to use. It powers up some physical abilities and helps people walk, sit down, stand up and do other actions.

HAL means Hybrid Assistive Limb. Quoted each initial letter of the three words, it’s called HAL.

Its system is both interesting and breakthrough. When we human attempt to move, we radiate very weak biosignals. It catches the signals, synchronizes and assists wearer’s action.

It can be used not only for assistance of disable people but for many other things. For example, it can be also used for rescue operation, entertainment and so on.

It’s useful and exciting, isn’t it?

    I will introduce software called JAWS. When people with a visual impairment access a computer, what interrupts them at first is reading text displayed by a screen. JAWS is helpful when they use a computer. JAWS is an excellent screen reader that a lot of people with a visual impairment use all over the world. JAWS reads aloud text displayed by a screen and the letter which they input. They can make the document and access to variant information by using JAWS. People with a visual impairment will be able to do comfortable netsurf because they can know the contents of the screen even if they do not look.
