On this web-page, we will collect links to other projects we like. Your suggestions are most welcome!

Be My Eyes

Be My Eyes is a free app that connects blind and low-vision people with sighted volunteers for visual assistance through a live video call.

For example, a colour blind person can call a volunteer, point the video camera of his smartphone at the coloured object and ask what colour it is. A wonderful example of how modern technology can be used to help people!


Novel Braille: the Fakoó font

Mr. Alexander Fakoó has developed a new Braille typeface that is compatible with printing fonts for sighted people. This typeface can therefore be used by normal sighted people without any learning effort and can support blind or visually impaired people in their everyday life.


service d’adresse mondial

The service d’adresse mondial (Worldwide Address Service) is a service for conveying postal addresses (mailing addresses) especially in non-Latin characters (such as Chinese, Japanese, or Korean). Any postal address gets a unique eight-letter code, the sedamo address code, which can be used to retrieve the original address in native writing.
