“BookSmart for home allows parents and caregivers to access a library from their mobile phones so they can support their children’s learning after the school day or when physical schools are not in session. BookSmart starts with a free base collection – 75+ great local and international books suitable for young readers and their parents…
…These books support the learning and socio-emotional development of children ages 3 to 12 years. The collection includes books in Arabic, English, Hindi, and Spanish. Books can be read online or offline to save on data costs.”
NaviLens is a navigation and labelling app especially designed for blind and partially sighted users.
NaviLens tags are used across the world:
NaviLens tags can be read aloud simply by pointing your phone in the general direction of that tag. It’s free and easy to use. The app works on both the Android and Apple operating systems and is completely accessible.”
“Some companies are incorporating NaviLens tags into their packaging and onto their directional signage. A NaviLens tag can help customers to access product ingredients and cooking instructions, prices and special offers, and help users to navigate around a building or even identify a transport stop or timetable. For World Sight Day, RNIB partnered with Kellogg's to include accessible information on cereal boxes using NaviLens tags.
Across the world, NaviLens is being used to make cities smarter and more inclusive and to allow users to interact more easily with their environment, in places such as subway stations, bus stops and museums or public buildings……The app can detect your native language and read information to you in that language, so a Spanish sign would be translated and relayed instantly in English or any one of 24 languages.” Royal National Institute of Blind People, UK charity | https://bit.ly/3nj6X1c
