Posts Tagged Mobility Aid

I’m a big fan of voice activated technology. Not just for the futuristic feel of being able to speak at a device but for the potential mobility benefits for those who aren’t as physically able as they would like to be. Convert Gold, rather than changing anything possible into gold (if only), enables its users to make unit conversions by speaking at the app rather than tapping the relevant buttons.

Supporting 12 different unit types, Convert Gold might not be the most comprehensive of unit convertors but it offers all the most important ones comprising of angles, area, energy, force, length, power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, volume and weight. All the user has to do is speak measurements such as ‘Tweleve feet in inches’ or anything else they can think of in a similar style and the app should provide the appropriate response.

Give it a try today. It’s out now priced at $2.99.

Voice Based Messaging With Jumvo

Hopefully of particular interest to those with mobility issues is Jumvo, an app that offers a group messaging service that’s entirely voice based.

Offering the advantages of SMS texting, Jumvo allows users to log into it through Facebook, thus having access to their entire friends list quickly. There’s no need to remember usernames, handles or phone numbers as everything can be done via the Facebook friends list. Users can then send individual messages or start a group orientated conversation thread simply by talking. The app uses the iPhone’s proximity sensor so that it automatically begins recording once the user holds their phone to their ear. Push alerts then inform the user when a reply is received. It’s all extremely simple.

The main benefit is the lack of interaction required. For those suffering from the likes of Repetitive Strain Injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Arthritis, it’s not always as easy to text as it once was, making Jumvo an ideal way of incorporating similar communication methods without the pain.

The app is out now and it’s a free download.
