Close your eyes and imagine you have not seen ever since the world and yourself. You will not have an idea with what it looks like when you only feel it.
It is been a fact that about 90% of the world's visually impaired people live in developing countries and 80% of all blindness can be prevented or cured. In developing countries there is lack of good ophthalmologists or if there are some, people don’t have capacity to pay for it.
Today we will show 8 apps to help this kind of people to use smartphone easily.
