The new generation BlindShell Classic 2 provides a unique design for people who are blind or who have low vision; a tactile keypad, voice dictation and loud speaker, plus many fully accessible apps - delivering the power of a smartphone without the hassle of a touchscreen.

The BlindShell Classic 2 has dozens of useful functions “built-in”, yet it is still simple to use “out of the box”. There are many optional apps  including voice recorder, weather updates, radio, podcast and book player, calendar, reminders and many more.  No need to learn “VoiceOver” or complex swipe gestures, the Blindshell Classic 2 is entirely menu-based using a minimal amount of tactile buttons. 

While not a fully-featured iPhone-style voice-activated Personal Assistant (or example, you can’t speak a “Hey Google” voice command) Blindshell Classic 2 does remove a lot of the complexity of smartphone use, which is often a barrier for many vision impaired people.
