Μια ομάδα επιστημόνων με κίνητρα και εξειδίκευση στο σχεδιασμό, τον προγραμματισμό και την υψηλή τεχνολογία, μετά από χρόνια έρευνας στην ανάπτυξη αυτής της τεχνολογίας, τώρα πια μπορεί να δώσει φωνή σε όσους δεν μπορούν να μιλήσουν.

 

Δώστε φωνή και ομιλία στη Νοηματική σας επικοινωνία

 

Το ηλεκτρονικό γάντι BrightSign

Το μόνο έξυπνο γάντι στον κόσμο που μπορεί να μεταφράσει οποιοδήποτε σήμα νοηματικής σε οποιαδήποτε προφορική γλώσσα - αμέσως.

 

    

Μετάφραση σε ομιλία για οποιοδήποτε σήμα Νοηματικής γλώσσας.

 

Ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα προβλήματα με τις υπάρχουσες λύσεις για άτομα με προβλήματα ακοής και ομιλίας είναι το γεγονός οι περισσότεροι θεωρούν πως όλοι εκφράζονται με τον ίδιο τρόπο.

Κάνουν ΛΑΘΟΣ. Με περισσότερες από 300 διαφορετικές επίσημες νοηματικές γλώσσες που χρησιμοποιούνται στον κόσμο, με χιλιάδες ακόμη μεμονωμένες παραλλαγές και συστήματα σημάτων, το να υποστηρίζεις μία ή δύο νοηματικές γλώσσες απλά δεν είναι αρκετά και ούτε καλύπτει τους τελικούς χρήστες.

 

Το BrightSign σάς επιτρέπει να του «διδάξετε» ΟΠΟΙΑΔΗΠΟΤΕ βιβλιοθήκη σημάτων νοηματικής γλώσσας μπορείτε (όπως ASL, BSL, Makaton κλπ.), ακόμα και κάποια που ίσως έχετε φτιάξει μόνοι σας.

...σε οποιαδήποτε γλώσσα!

Ο χρήστης της νοηματικής δεν πρέπει να περιορίζεται σε οποιαδήποτε παραδοσιακή «ομιλούμενη» νοηματική γλώσσα για την επικοινωνία του. Το BrightSign επιτρέπει στους χρήστες να χρησιμοποιούν περισσότερες από 30 διαφορετικές γλώσσες για να μεταφράσουν τα σήματα τους σε πραγματικό χρόνο ενώ επικοινωνούν, ακόμα κι αν δεν γνωρίζουν οι ίδιοι τη γλώσσα. Με την παραγωγή προφορικού και κειμένου, επιτρέπουμε ακόμη και γλώσσες με διαφορετικά αλφάβητα, όπως τα αραβικά ή τα κινέζικα (mandarin).

 

 

Το BrightSign υποστηρίζει τουλάχιστον μια φωνή σε κάθε μια από τις παρακάτω γλώσσες:

Αγγλικά (ΗΒ), Αγγλικά (ΗΠΑ), Αγγλικά (Αυστραλίας), Αγγλικά (Ινδίας), Αφρικάανς, Αραβικά, Αλβανικά, Μπενγκάλι, Βουλγάρικα, Catalan, Κανονικά, Κινέζικα (Μανταρίν), Τσέχικα, Δανέζικα, Ολλανδικά, Φιλιππινέζικα, Φινλανδικά, Γαλλικά, Γερμανικά, Ελληνικά, Γκουτζαράτι, Χίντι, Ουγγρικά, Ισλανδικά, Ινδονησιακά, Ιταλικά, Ιαπωνικά, Κανάντα, Κορεάτικα, Λετονικά, Μαλαισιανά, Νορβηγικά, Πολωνικά, Πορτογαλικά, Πορτογαλικά (Βραζιλίας), Ρουμάνικα, Ρωσικά, Ισπανικά, Σουηδικά, Τούρκικα, Ουκρανικά, Βιετναμέζικα, κ.λπ.

 

Γιατί το κάνουμε;

Φανταστείτε έναν γονέα να ακούει για πρώτη φορά τις λέξεις «σ’ αγαπώ» από το κωφό παιδί του. Φανταστείτε έναν ασθενή με αναπηρία ομιλίας να έχει ιδιωτικές συνομιλίες με τον γιατρό του χωρίς μεταφραστή στο δωμάτιο. Φανταστείτε έναν κωφό που μπαίνει σε ένα κατάστημα και μπορεί να παραγγείλει τον δικό του καφέ χωρίς να χρειάζεται βοήθεια από κάποιον φίλο που γνωρίζει νοηματική.

Να γιατί.

Accessibility Products and Services from IGI-Group UK Ltd.

Here you'll find articles and news about Accessibility Products and Services

  Accessibility Definition
Accessibility is the degree to which a product, device, service, or environment is available to as many people as possible. Accessibility can be viewed as the “ability to access” and benefit from some system or entity.

  Assistive Technology

 Assistive technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and also includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them. Assistive technology promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by providing enhancements to, or changing methods of interacting with, the technology needed to accomplish such tasks. (from Wikipedia)

 

 Visual Impairment
Total blindness is the inability to tell light from dark, or the total inability to see.
Visual impairment or low vision is a severe reduction in vision that cannot be corrected with standard glasses or contact lenses and reduces a person’s ability to function at certain or all tasks.

   Hearing Impairment

  A hearing impairment is a hearing loss that prevents a person from totally receiving sounds through the ear. If the loss is mild, the person has difficulty hearing faint or distant speech. A person with this degree of hearing impairment may use a hearing aid to amplify sounds.

  Mobility Impairment

  Mobility impairment refers to the inability of a person to use one or more of his/her extremities, or a lack of strength to walk, grasp, or lift objects. The use of a wheelchair, crutches, or a walker may be utilized to aid in mobility.

  Communication

A communication disorder is an impairment in the ability to receive, send, process, and comprehend concepts or verbal, nonverbal and graphic symbol systems. A communication disorder may be evident in the processes of hearing, language, and/or speech. A communication disorder may range in severity from mild to profound.

   Reading, Learning and Training Disabilities

A learning disability is a neurological condition that interferes with an individual’s ability to store, process, or produce information.

Learning disabilities can affect one’s ability to read, write, speak, spell, compute math, reason and also affect an individual’s attention, memory, coordination, social skills and emotional maturity.

  Senior Citizen Support and Aging in place

Allowing seniors to age in their own homes is associated with significant improvements in their physical and mental health.

COVID-19 Update

As COVID-19 (the coronavirus) continues to impact the global community, we know it is important to provide customers and partners with a transparent update on how we are responding to the outbreak. Ensuring that the safety for all of us being our top priority we protect our customers too. We are committed to providing our customers with a service level they are accustomed to receiving from us and that they have a clear understanding of what to expect as outlined below.

  1. Business Continuity: We are continuing our business operations in a responsible way. IGI-Group is reopening and operating in accordance with recommended health guidelines with minimal disruption. Our customers will continue to receive similar levels of communication and service they have come to expect.
  2. Business Travel: We are pausing all business travel to customer locations for onsite activities until further notice. We will be converting those meetings to virtual meetings using conference and video calls. We are monitoring the situation and will return to normal travel operations when guidance allows. Where feasible, we will offer options to convert onsite services to digital or remote delivery and will be communicating individually if this applies to your account.
  3. Events & Conferences: We have canceled our onsite participation at conferences, tradeshows, and events until conditions support a return to those operations. We don’t know how long this will last and will return to our normal presence when it is safe to do so. In the interim, we will provide digital delivery of any webinars or other content so that you may continue to get value from our participation.
  4. Communications: We will provide transparency through this process. Because we are continuing business operations in our remote capacity, you may continue to reach out to your usual business contact and expect similar response times.
  5. Our staff is fully vaccinated and still respecting all the WHO protection procedures.

Please be assured that we are continually reviewing the situation and adapting as necessary to ensure we are doing what is best for our employees and the business. We will continue to provide updates as the situation is constantly changing. Thank you for your business and continued support.

Vision Information

Understanding vision conditions

Most commonly referred to as blindness or low vision, there are many different types of visual impairments, each unique in their own ways. We believe that the first step to working with a visual condition is to understand it first. For that reason we have put together a list of visual impairments and talked about each one.

Glossary of Vision Terms

The terms and definitions found in this glossary relate to vision and vision loss. Please note that this glossary is not comprehensive.

20/20 vision – A measurement of visual acuity (or clearness of sight) that most eye care professionals consider as the mean. The level of acuity is routinely measured by requiring an individual to identify various sizes of black symbols on a white background at a distance – an eye chart. The first numeral 20 defines the distance in feet from the individual. The second numeral 20 defines the distance from which a person can distinguish characters on an eye chart that is 20 feet away. Most people can identify characters on an eye chart at 20 feet. A person with 20/200 eyesight can see at 20 feet what a person with normal sight (20/20) can see when standing 200 feet away.

AMD – AMD is an acronym for Age-related Macular Degeneration, characterized by a worsening loss of central vision as a result of deterioration of the macula, which contains retinal cones that are required for sight. Learn more about AMD / Macular Degeneration

Amsler Grid – A black-lined grid on a white background, used for testing central sight field distortion and impairments that signal macular degeneration and other vision loss issues. See a graphic representation of an Amsler Grid.

Aqueous Humor – the clear fluid contained between the iris and cornea that provides necessary nutrients to the lens and cornea. When this fluid cannot drain, it creates unrelieved pressure that can result in Glaucoma and vision loss. Learn more about Glaucoma.

Astigmatism – An eye disorder caused by uneven curvature of the eyeball that motivates light rays to bend, targeting more than one point of the retina, instead of a single spot. This causes blurry vision, vague shadows on characters when reading, and slight double vision.

Blepharospasm – A condition that causes involuntary blinking to an excessive measure that the affected individual cannot see. Blepharospasm is considered as a form of functional blindness.

Braille – A tactile reading and writing system invented by Louis Braille in the 1820s and widely used by the blind and deaf-blind. Braille is made up of a system of raised dots that are felt with the fingertips. Braille makes reading, writing, note taking, and communicating possible for blind and deaf-blind users.

Braille display – A tactile device consisting of a row of rectangular cells, each of which contains a series of moveable pins. The pins are controlled electronically to move up or down to form Braille characters. The characters depict the information that appears on the text source, typically via a computer or notetaker device.

Cataracts – Commonly caused by aging in conjunction with diabetes, excessive exposure to UV rays, and sometimes caused by smoking and excessive steroid use, cataracts result in clouding or yellowing of the eye lens and, thus, blurred vision; halos around objects ( in particular, lights); glare; and diminished perception of color saturation. Learn more about Cataracts.

CCTV / Closed-circuit television – an older term for a video camera system that broadcasts a signal to a specific monitor (as opposed to a public broadcast source). The more common term for use for people with low vision is video magnifier.

CMV Retinitis – A visual impairment characterized by spots before the eyes (floaters), blurred and/or distorted vision, commonly experienced by persons with immune deficiencies.

Contrast sensitivity – A property that regulates the level at which the eye can detect differences in contrast between an object or character and its background – for instance, the contrast between a black letter on a white page.

Corneal Dystrophy – Classified under several categories, corneal dystrophy is a medical syndrome that results in loss of transparency of the cornea. Individuals who have this condition experience differing levels of blurred vision, light sensitivity, and vision loss.

Diabetic Retinopathy – The leading cause of vision loss in persons who are diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy is brought on by leakage of the retinal blood vessels and can develop into progressive blurred vision, double vision, floaters, visual distortion and, ultimately, some degree of blindness. Learn more about Diabetic Retinopathy.

Glaucoma – A sight impairment caused by unrelieved pressure inside the eye as a result of fluid build-up. Permanent impairment can range from loss of peripheral vision to severe vision loss. Individuals with glaucoma may experience increased frequency of headaches, blurred vision, halos around lights, difficulty seeing in the dark, and sometimes, a non-reactive pupil, pain, or even a swollen eye. Learn more about Glaucoma.

Grave’s Disease – An autoimmune disorder present in cases of thyroid abnormality. Grave’s Disease can affect vision, including eye discomfort, double vision, and degrees of vision loss.

Hyperopia / Hyperopic / Farsighted – A person is considered “farsighted,” when items at a distance are in focus, but close object are blurry. The medical term for farsightedness is hyperopia.

Keratoconus – An eye disorder that leads to degeneration of vision and various degrees of vision loss, ranging from blurred, doubled or distorted vision to severe vision loss that cannot be improved by glasses or other common optical aids. Keratoconus results from a severe form of astigmatism in which the cornea thins and reforms into a cone-shaped bulge.

Legally blind – Having 20/200 vision in the best eye with correction or a visual field of 20 degrees or less.

Low vision – A significant reduction of visual acuity that ordinary eyeglasses, contact lenses, and/or medical treatment cannot completely correct.

Macula – The small area in the retina that contains special cells that are especially sensitive to light. The macula enables people to see fine details clearly.

Macular Degeneration – See AMD.

Metamorphopsia – Distorted vision caused by impairments of the eye’s macula and/or retina. Objects may look nearer or farther than they really are, and lines may appear wavy or bent.

Multiple-view magnification camera – A portable, rotating closed-circuit camera that provides magnified views of objects from varying distances — from close-up self view magnification, to document views for reading, to the magnification of objects from across large rooms or auditoriums.

Myopia / Myopic / Nearsighted – A person is considered “nearsighted” or myopic when close up items are in focus, but more distant objects are blurry, by degree.

Notetaker – A portable electronic Braille device that enables blind users to take notes, create documents, and access applications. These devices usually provide either speech or Braille output or both.

OCR / Optical Character Recognition – Electronic conversion of images or printed text into machine-editable and readable text after capture by scanning, where it can be readable using speech, large print, or Braille.

Ocular Albinism – A condition in which lack of pigmentation in the eye results in light sensitivity, blurry vision, and varying degrees of vision loss.

Presbyopia – An eye disorder of middle age, usually first evidenced by some minor loss of vision – blurred letters while reading at a normal close-up distance. Clear vision degenerates over time into more significant loss of near sight, as the individual continues to age. It is usually caused by the natural loss of the elasticity of the eye.

Retinal detachment – A critical eye condition in which the retina – the part of the eye that receives light and translates it into signals that allow the brain to form images – separates from the underlying tissue. Some people may experience floaters, shadows over vision, very blurred vision, and/or unexplained flashes of light. Without immediate treatment, permanent damage may occur, including significant vision loss to blindness. Retinal detachment is most commonly found in persons who are aged, have severe myopia, have had cataract surgery, or have been diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy.

Retinitis Pigmentosa – a progressive visual impairment with various end-results, ranging from some significant vision loss to total blindness. Symptoms include night blindness and loss of peripheral vision. Retinitis pigmentosa is one of the most common forms of inherited retinal degeneration. Learn more about Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Scanning and reading – A means to convert text to speech or large print output text OCR software.

Screen magnification software – Software that interfaces with a computer’s graphical output to present enlarged images of monitor content.

Screen reader / Screen reading software – Software, such as JAWS, that interprets computer screen content and reads it aloud via synchronized speech.

Speech synthesizer – Software that works with a computer’s sound card to produce speech.

Video magnifier – A means of enlarging the appearance of text and images via a closed-circuit video camera system, by projecting magnified views from the camera’s field of focus to a computer monitor. See CCTV.

Visual acuity – See 20/20 vision.
