Interactive technology for age-related blindness
by Dr. Abdullah Al Mahmud
This research helps older adults with age related blindness living in their own homes. Elderly people who become blind late in life don’t have the same opportunities to acquire new skills such as braille and job access with speech computing protocols becoming vulnerable to social isolation and restricted mobility.
We developed a prototype solution to reconnect these people and engage in the digital world. Audio Genie is a first generation product in the form of a new ambisonic audio interaction technology.
