Refining life for visually impaired customers this 'World Disability Day', Jugnoo syncs 'Talkback' feature to its app

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Aligning itself with the primary objective of celebrating 'World Disability Day', Jugnoo does its bit by syncing its Android app with Google's 'Talkback' feature.

The major driver behind this move was a hopeful desire to improve lives of people with some disability. This addition is aimed at aiding visually impaired customers to not only book autos from anywhere anytime, but also order meals, grocery, fruits and vegetables with ease. The international day of disabled person's is observed on December 3rd world over.

"We have been bringing in a lot of innovation in various verticals that makes life easy for people. However, I realized that while we continue to exploit technology to improve our lives, we hardly innovate anything keeping disabled people at the center," said Samar Singla.

"We received few emails from various people asking us to integrate capabilities to enable app to be used with assistive devices. For iOS, we have already integrated the app with Siri. Thus, ushering in the good hope of 'World Disability Day' we decided to further our technology and sync it with Google's Talkback to our Android app that could help improve lives of disabled persons across the country," added Singla.

Furthering the drive, Jugnoo also has differently abled drivers enrolled with the brand. These drivers have already hit the floor in the Indian cities of Chandigarh, Udaipur, Faridabad, Lucknow, Indore and Jodhpur.

Google's TalkBack service is a great way for the vision-impaired to use all of Android's features. TalkBack is an Accessibility Service that helps vision-impaired users interact with, and enjoy, their devices. It uses spoken word, vibration and other audible feedback to let you know what's on your screen, what you're touching, and what you can do with it.
