iPhone App Helps the Vision-Impaired

Darren Burton, a man who lost his vision in 1993 after a tumor and surgery that damaged his optic nerve has worked alongside with Marshall University senior Ricky Kirkendall to create a note-taking app called AccessNote.

The application is designed to work for those who have low vision or are blind. The functionality is designed so that it uses VoiceOver to guide a user through the interface. It also uses tilt functions to carry out certain operations. The main goal for the developers was to make something that’s easily accessible while making it as efficient for someone who is vision-impaired to use it as it would be for a sighted person.
