    Product information

    The dummy shell cell phones were primarily designed to help. Plain and simple. Blindshell has listened to its customers and improved its features to be simple and meet the real needs of visually impaired users. Hence the keyboard and a wide range of practical applications. The operation is really intuitive. You can either use the keyboard or control your phone with voice. And yes, you will be able to serve it in less than 30 minutes. The design of Blindshell Classic is carefully selected to be practical, durable and easy to use. The lifelong free updates which are included are also a matter of course for us.

    The SmartVision by KAPSYS is an Android smartphone that is primarily controlled by a physical keyboard that occupies the lower third of the front. The touch detection on the touch screen is possible, there is a controlled control of elements by swiping gestures as in iOS and Android, however, not there. In addition to telephony, messaging, e-mail and browser, the SmartVision has a number of specially tailored to blind users apps, such as navigation (Kapten app) and text recognition. Above the keyboard there is a touch screen, which is also necessary for activating some functions of the included apps. The SmartVision can also be controlled via voice input.

    The SmartVision is especially suitable for blind and visually impaired users who are not comfortable with the more complex gestural operation of smartphones when the screen reader is switched on or are used to the use of telephones with a number pad and do not want to get used to it. The SmartVision basic features telephone with contacts, e-mail and SMS can be used well. Android apps are poorly usable.

    A control bar just below the screen offers four buttons with a very individual operating concept with voice output (described in detail in the area of haptics). In addition, there are keys in the lower part of the screen (Menu, Home screen, Back) that can be activated by holding down the OK key but can also be deactivated in the settings. All this wants to be learned first.

    Texts can be written on the number pad by repeatedly pressing the numbers, in the same way as many users know it from their Nokia phones.

    With the voice control both texts can be dictated and the smartphone can be controlled. However, some must be spoken very clearly so that the device understands the right commands. The best way to use the full names of the apps (for example, "SMS / MMS" instead of just "SMS").

    The basic functions like phoning and texting and even small programs like the calculator, the clock and the SOS function are easily accessible and easy to use. Unfortunately, already in the settings a fundamental problem occurs, which is also found in many other menus. Although the speech output reads the individual menu items and also says whether switches are selected or not. However, no intermediate headings are read, which makes the orientation worse.

    In some apps it is not possible to capture the entire screen content via the haptic keyboard. In the external Android apps, an operation is mostly possible only by touching and exploring. The Google Playstore, which is essential for installing additional Android apps, has limited access for screen reader users. Many elements are not focused on keyboard usage.
