The goal of Haptic is to provide those who are visually impaired a better experience using their smartphone. Nowadays, visually impaired users rely mainly on their sense of hearing to operate a smartphone screen, but voice reading is difficult to use in noisy environments, doesn’t provide privacy, is inefficient, and is disruptive to others. Haptic is a haptic feedback language and system that uses vibration effects to help users identify elements on their phone’s interface and access key information. This solution is more in line with the way visually impaired people perceive the world.
