Welcome to Philosoft Mobile Ltd.
Philosoft Mobile Ltd develops software for mobile touch devices specifically catering to the blind and visually impaired.
We are one of the only companies that enables the blind and visually impaired to access all points on a phone (Android or IOS) and reap the technological benefits others without disabilities do everyday.
We succeed because of three guiding principles:
Many companies alter devices and minimize functions to help the blind and visually impaired avoid mistakes. Instead of developing new devices or altering them Philosoft Mobile integrates its solutions in mass produced devices creating customizations for overall easier navigating.
In addition to the integrative solutions Philosoft Mobile Ltd specializes in making everyday tasks on touch technology easier and more accessible for the blind and visually impaired. Examples include a voice activating dialer and an SMS application which gets it right and is not just a device’s ‘best shot.’
Occasionally specialty devices are necessary for people with disabilities but they usually come with a high cost making them unavailable to the general population. By integrating solutions and enabling accessibility through utilizing devices in mass production Philosoft Mobile Ltd helps keep prices down so the company’s products are affordable to anyone in need.
