It has gotten to the point that many of us cannot live without our smartphones or tablets. These devices help their user work and play, and can be highly addictive. But many people with limited vision and/or hearing cannot enjoy many of the features of the average wireless device without help.
Missouri’s Telecommunications Access Program Wireless Project is hoping to improve the smartphone and tablet experience for blind and deaf residents. The program, also known as TAP Wireless Project, is conducting a pilot program of providing devices to volunteers that are supposed to help them in their daily lives.
