Technology Ideas from Brian Charlson

Brian Charlson is a wealth of information, and he didn't disappoint the attendees of the OCB Convention on Friday, September 28, 2012.

Omoby app installed
Here are some of his favorite iPhone, iPod and/or iPad apps:

  • VizWiz - allows blind users to receive quick answers to questions about their surroundings
  • Omoby - snap a photo of a product or scan a barcode to access shopping information
  • Digit-Eyes - reads barcode labels, enabling people without vision to scan UPC/EAN codes and hear the names of over 25 million products. Users can also make their own barcode labels on the Digit-Eyes website and print them on inexpensive address labels.
