In this interview, we speak with Marie Tranbahuy, Managing Director for the UK branch of Claria. Marie demonstrates a Nexus 5 phone modified with both a hardware overlay and customized software including basic functionality such as phone and email applications, as well as blindness-specific applications like GPS and a DAISY reader. A version is available for both blind and low vision users, and you can learn more from the Claria website, or from their U.S. distributor Odin Mobile.
