Nearly 325 million people are blind or visually impaired.
For them, Social Media is a major instrument to interact with others. The problem: Social media communication gets more and more visually affected. We wanted to use technology to overcome this problem. Hence we create the first picture format that is accessible for all people and combines information and emotion: The photo App FotoOto.
Images become audible.
Fotooto: Social media for the visually impaired - experience a total new way of photography.
Experience pictures beyond seeing: FotoOto transforms photographs into sound images and makes pictures audible. This allows blind and visually impaired people to capture visual formats and share their own content on social media.
FotoOto. Developed with blind people, for everybody.
Take and share pictures.
Here's how it works: A simple interface design makes the camera easier to use. Integrated image recognition reads out aloud what is to be seen on the image.
FotoOto then converts the picture into individual sounds and thus into unique soundscapes. With one click, audio commentary or ambient sounds can be added to the photo.
