Samsung has released three new assistive technology accessories for its Galaxy Core Advance smartphone designed to be used by people with disabilities and visual impairments. Samsung says it can guide its user around unfamiliar areas by sensing the presence of people or obstacles up to two meters away and providing warnings through small vibrations or audio cues. The Optical Scan Stand can detect, scan, and read text on paper placed below it out loud, while the Voice Label can connect with the Galaxy Core Advance, letting users record notes and descriptions. The Galaxy Core Advance is one of Samsungs low-end models, but the new additions are positive steps towards making smartphone technology both usable and useful in daily life for all.
