Working for People with Sight Loss

NCBI Labs Technology Live Event 17

This week we discuss the rapidly evolving area of smart home technology.

We’re joined by Sam Seavey from the popular YouTube channel The Blind Life and play one of his videos on the Amazon Smart Oven. Though not available in Ireland yet, we find out how it can be paired with an Amazon Echo to offer great accessibility in the kitchen for someone with sight loss.

We feature demonstrations on the accessibility features built into a Samsung Smart TV and how to operate a Samsung Smart Washing Machine using the SmartThings app on a smartphone.

We also talk about smart doorbells, smart thermostats, and even smart vacuum cleaners.
