Launch of Claria Zoom, the all-in-one application for elderly and partially sighted people
Published on 09/14/2015, 3:43 PM
In order to make Smartphones more accessible to elderly or partially sighted people, the start-up company Claria, which is specialised in developing digital solutions for visually impaired users, is officially launching its application Claria Zoom from the 10th of September, available worldwide on the Google Play Store.
Claria Zoom has been rewarded by a jury of low vision professionals with the Golden Silmo under the low vision category at the last World Optics Fair in Paris.
Easily downloaded from the Google Play store and compatible with Android devices, Claria Zoom offers an incredible reading comfort to simplify the user’s daily dealings.
The interface with very large characters and contrasted colours allows you to both adapt your phone to your sight and easily access all the functionalities available: You can then send text messages, read your emails and favourite newspapers, but also use dedicated tools such as the magnifier or the OCR (Optical character recognition).
Thanks to a rich and complete panel of functionalities which makes the navigation on a Smartphone much easier, Claria Zoom is helping elderly and people suffering from sight diseases (Macular degeneration, glaucoma...) to remain active and independent.
Electronic Magnifier, vocalised book reader, pedestrian GPS are from now on accessible
For a visually impaired person, acquiring specific material and accessible devices is often quite expensive and requires waiting up to a few months sometimes to receive financial support from the government. As an example, an electronic magnifier costs between $500 and $800, a vocalised book reader between $250 and $350, a vocalised pedestrian GPS between $350 and $500, etc.
Apart from its larger interface, Claria has been adapting and adjusting these expensive functionalities to make them really accessible to partially sighted users. It is the only application including more than 20 easy-to-use functionalities ranging from standard features such as phone, text messages, emails, calendar and camera, to dedicated tools which greatly help the user to overcome daily struggle, such as an electronic magnifier, a book reader, a vocalised GPS and a voice recognition system to dictate both text messages and emails.
The Claria Zoom application with its basics functionalities is available for free on the Google Play Store (only for Android devices) and for $3.99 per month without commitment you can have access to all the advanced functionalities (30 days of free trial).
Free demo and download available on www.claria-zoom.com
