Phone for the Blind

This incredible Nokia cell phone could revolutionize communication for blind people. While the phone only costs $600, it’s the $2,400 software by KNFB Reading Technologies Inc. that will bring independence back to the visually impaired.



When the camera in the phone captures an image of text, the device can translate it into audible speech. Peter Alan Smith uses his phone to read restaurant menus; he captures the image, then listens to the options through an ear piece.


“At work, I can take a picture of two different documents to figure out which is which,” Smith said. “At home, if I’m making chili, I can take a picture of a can to make sure it’s the kidney beans before I open it.”
