What was I looking for?
Main focus of this journey into the Android world of apps was related to reading.
(Probably not only for visually impaired people but even people who "just need reading glasses" or people with dyslexia, etc.)
Magnification is essential
Thanks to Androids Accessibility features, the screen magnification is already of great help. Combined with a magnifier app, it becomes already even more useful.
Text-to-Speech is so much help …
Fortunately, TTS is getting better and better, and helps a lot reading on-screen or captured texts.
BUT here must be more …
Thinking of hints to help in everyday life, I came across QR Codes and NFC Tags.
Even though the idea of QR Codes(Quick Response Codes) is rather old, it seems it has mainly been used for marketing purposes rather than for improving people's lives.
NFC Tags (Near Field Communication) is getting more popular theses days and more and more phones are equipped with the required technology.
Both of them have enormous potential to help VIPs and other people, and I will just mention a few at t his stage.
This "private need" grew into wild ideas.
… by having these codes around us, and let's develop a way to create them effectively and securely without compromising data, i.e. the ability to produce them offline.
And let's think about hout to spread the idea and make it happen everywhere.
Let our smartphones be our best eye.
After downloading a QR Scanner app, any smartphone user can read the information in the QR Code. By just pointing the camera at the code.
Depending on their size, these Codes can take up to 4,296 alphanumerical characters in a standard QR Code.
