Summary

NaviLens is a navigation and labelling app especially designed for blind and partially sighted users.

NaviLens tags can be accessed by the app at a distance, or when moving, simply by pointing the phone in the general direction of the tab. This is a key advantage over other standard tags like QR codes which require the ability for the user to see in order to focus the phone camera on a specific point.

This means that where the tags are used, people with visually impairment can use them to:

  • Find their way around cities
  • Use public transport, including using codes to access timetable information
  • Access information from tags on food packets or posters.
You can also create your own tags using the app with a colour printer, for example to label items at home.

Reviews

Reviewer: Royal National Institute of Blind People, UK charity
Review:

NaviLens is a navigation and labelling app especially designed for blind and partially sighted users.

NaviLens tags are used across the world:

  • to help people with sight loss navigate and find their way around cities independently
  • by retailers and manufacturers who are incorporating NaviLens into their designs to help users quickly and easily access information
  • by anyone with a smartphone who can create their own unique audio tags.

NaviLens tags can be read aloud simply by pointing your phone in the general direction of that tag. It’s free and easy to use. The app works on both the Android and Apple operating systems and is completely accessible.”

“Some companies are incorporating NaviLens tags into their packaging and onto their directional signage. A NaviLens tag can help customers to access product ingredients and cooking instructions, prices and special offers, and help users to navigate around a building or even identify a transport stop or timetable. For World Sight Day, RNIB partnered with Kellogg's to include accessible information on cereal boxes using NaviLens tags.

Across the world, NaviLens is being used to make cities smarter and more inclusive and to allow users to interact more easily with their environment, in places such as subway stations, bus stops and museums or public buildings…

…The app can detect your native language and read information to you in that language, so a Spanish sign would be translated and relayed instantly in English or any one of 24 languages.”
