[About the app]
Samsung Good Vibes is a two-way communication app for the deafblind. It converts text or voice into vibrations & vibrations into text or voice.
[How it works]
Using Morse Code, a language almost as old as Braille, Samsung Good Vibes breaks down the barrier of communication for the deafblind. The app interprets every letter of the English alphabets & numbers into Morse Code and Morse Code into English alphabets & numbers.
[An App with 2 interfaces]
There are two types of interfaces of Samsung Good Vibes app-
a. A deafblind person - The deafblind can’t see, hear or speak, but they have a heightened sense of touch. The deafblind can touch and feel the vibrations of the smartphone. The deafblind person can send a message from this app through pressing the screen and sending message through Morse code. In Morse Code all alphabets and letters are a combination of a dot & dash. The alphabets can be entered on the screen through vibration where dot is a entered as a small tap and dash is entered as a long tap. Likewise the message can be read through vibrations by the deafblind where small vibration means dot and long vibration means dash.
b. A person with normal vision - anyone can send a message, by typing or speaking. It is a standard chat/voice interface that is delivered to the deafblind person as vibrations.
Always on - The app can be always on, which allows the deafblind to start using Samsung Good Vibes without the need to power on the app.
