The solution to the problem of the disabled is often very user friendly but often the help of a normal buddy is necessary. Once the system has been set up, no further help and assistance is required by people who are physically challenged.
Look out for the apps
For those who have listening impairment, buying a rechargeable external speaker may solve the problem. This external speaker plugs into the 3.5mm jack provided in all smartphones and tabs. The speakers cost around 20 dollars and are available all over. For those who are deaf, there is an app in the app market that transcribes words spoken by a friend into text that the disabled person can read and then respond accordingly. If you are using a smartphone that runs on Android OS, there are some apps especially designed to help people with physical challenges to make full use of their Android gadgets. Thos with difficulties with finger movement can now switch off their device by a single tap rather than having to press the required button for a few seconds. Then there is this app that allows disabled to control their phone through voice commands rather than having to manually use their fingers.
