BlindShell 2 Baroque

BlindShell 2 Baroque


BlindShell 2 Baroque is a successor of our very first international BlindShell Renaissance. We have gone a far way since then, honed every aspect to its perfection. The control of the phone is as simple is it always was, but now there are many more applications and even world’s most used Internet messaging apps WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Internet messaging apps

Stay in touch with your close ones, use the latest messaging apps to be always reachable and always in contact.

  • WhatsApp messenger
  • Facebook Messenger
  • Same style of control as the rest of the phone
  • Audio calls over the messangers

Voice control and dictation

Instead of using your fingers, use your voice. Open an application, call a contact, or dictate a text purely by your voice.

  • Voice dictating any text
  • Calling contacts
  • Getting information about weather or location
  • Taking notes

The easiest way to control a phone


For BlindShell simplicity is the number one priority. We have learned from the modern smartphones, how cumbersome and frustrating can they be, and not just for people with visual impairment. And that is why are we following three basic rules: Keep it simple, keep it easy, keep it efficient.

We are offering you the easiest way to control a phone. You only need 3 gestures to get around. Tap once to move in a menu. Long press to confirm, and long press with two fingers to go back. That’s it. The simplicity itself.

Highlights


Vision aids

BlindShell boasts of large set of applications which are specifically designed for people with vision impairment. Text recognition and Object tagging have already made many lives of blind people so much easier. For low vision users there is the Magnifier application, which quality can be compared to devices that are sold as stand alone magnifiers.

Constant development

BlindShell surely have a lot of applications tailored to the needs of its users. But did you know that we are constantly working on new applications and additions, which we regularly add to the phone? In last year we have introduced new features such as FM radio, Bluetooth, Object Tagging, Games, Camera, Images, or Song recognition. And you can be sure that we are not stopping there.

Games

BlindShell now has games! Starting humbly with a game of chess and a sound puzzle. Now you do not have to be worried that you will get bored again. Entertain not just yourself but also your close ones with many sound-packs that are in the game of Puzzle.
