This interactive product for mobile phones has been specially designed for visually impaired individuals and is based on innovative touch feedback technology. Operation is enabled by Braille buttons which are attached to the display and provide voice and touch control. Content on the display is recognised and read aloud by software, thus facilitating functions like navigation, purchasing and payment. The Braille buttons are compatible with many different smartphones.

Thanks to its integrative design, SmartFit is easy to use and makes it possible for blind and visually impaired people to use a smartphone.
