Digital Miracles, LLC, is pleased to announce a major advancement in
assistive technology for people who are blind and visually impaired. The
Digit-Eyes Audio Labeling System has been approved for sale on the Apple
Apps Store. As of June 23rd, the millions of people worldwide with
substantial vision loss can begin downloading the iPhone application to
recognize and label the important items in their lives. Reasonably priced at
$29.99, the Digit-Eyes phone app is a powerful tool that fits into any
budget and life- style, turning challenging tasks into easy, safe
activities. The Digit-Eyes system gives users a simple way to make custom
labels for everyday items and it identifies packaged goods-joining advanced
software with the iPhone, the Internet, home computers, printers, and
inexpensive off-the-shelf labels. People of almost any visual ability can
now put groceries away and grab the right prescription bottle independently.
"This is the most exciting product I've worked on," says Nancy Miracle,
president of Digital Miracles and software engineer with 40 years
experience. "The limited functions and high cost of existing assistive
devices just seemed wrong, so our objective was to develop a product that
performed better than any comparable technology and offer it at about 10% of
the price. Combining the need for identification with a natural, powerful
and robust tool like the iPhone made the project irresistible." With
Digit-Eyes, users can print custom text labels or record audio labels that
they make by scanning specially coded labels and speaking into their phones.
They attach the labels to household items, and the messages are played back
whenever the codes are rescanned with their iPhones. This Digit-Eyes app can
also scan manufacturer codes (UPC, EAN, ISBN) and say what's inside the
package after checking the vast Digit-Eyes product database. Each iPhone
stores over five hundred hours of information and can be used just about
anywhere. "This product is amazing! By labeling leftovers with their
contents and date refrigerated, I can determine if my dinner will be edible
or not. Next, I'll be labeling my jungle of AC adapters so I'll never again
have to guess what they all go to. The ease of use and flexibility of the
process make it an invaluable tool!" Randy Builder, Seattle, Washington. The
first public display of Digit-Eyes is at the National Federation of the
Blind convention in Dallas, Texas, July 4 - 7, booth B113. The exhibit then
moves to the American Council of the Blind convention July 10 - 15 in
Phoenix, Arizona, booth #41. Attendees can experience the use and capability
of the system with hands-on demonstrations. Details, explanations, and
examples will be available at both conventions, or immediately on-line at
www.DIGIT-EYES.com. Digital Miracles, LLC, the parent company of Digit-Eyes,
is a Texas-based corporation that develops customized software solutions.
The Digit-Eyes Audio Labeling System was created by a team of engineers,
software designers and members of the visually impaired community. Product
