In a recent episode of Unmute Presents, BlindShell representatives discussed the latest updates and features of the BlindShell platform. The major update allows users to connect a Bluetooth keyboard to their BlindShell device, offering greater convenience for writing texts, emails, and navigating the device. The battery strength is now displayed on the home screen, eliminating the need to check notifications.
Additionally, BlindShell announced a new program called the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides free monthly wireless service to eligible individuals. To qualify, households must meet certain income criteria or be enrolled in specific programs such as Medicaid, SSI, SNAP, or Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit. The program is available in 47 states, excluding California, Louisiana, and Alaska. Interested individuals can apply online through the BlindShell website.
The representatives also hinted at the development of wearable technology as an accessory for the BlindShell platform, expected to be available within the next 12 to 18 months or sooner. Feedback from users regarding a recent survey on this topic is encouraged to further improve the BlindShell experience.
