New Blappy application enables persons with disabilities to better communicate

Blappy is a new application that aims to provide persons with hearing and visual disabilities with the opportunity to communicate more fluidly. It allows the users to change voice messages into text and vice versa, as well as adding contrast images and zooming the screen.

The application, created by the Spanish Center of Subtitling and Description (CESyA in Spanish) and the  Universidad Carlos III de Madrid Audiovisual Accessibility Laboratory, is currently available only for Android phones. To use the service, users should install the app in two terminals that are less than 30 meters apart, connect via Bluetooth and start sending messages either using voice recognition or a keyboard. It is currently available in Spanish, French, English and Portuguese.
