Problem: For modern moviegoers, there’s never been a better time to go to see a film in the theater. But for the 1 in 5 Americans who aren't native english speakers, or the 38 million deaf patrons who rely on subtitles, the experience isn't pretty.
Solution: Create a universal platform that works across all devices to provide access to quality subtitles anytime, anywhere in the world. And to provide the service for free.
Now you can finally put a name with a face and vice versa. This app uses voice recognition to identify a new voice and pairs it with a photograph before adding it to your address book. This would be crucial for the office holiday party. For deaf people this is particularly useful- since every time the app recognizes a familiar voice, their contact info appears in the display. This is especially helpful when people call your name when your back is turned (it happens more often than you can imagine), or in a meeting when everyone is talking over each other and the interpreter can’t keep up with who said what.
This app takes “Shazam” one step further. Not only will it detect the tune, but it will provide karaoke-style lyrics right to your Google Glass. If you’re hearing, you can sing along. If you’re deaf, you’re more tuned in.
Movita, Intune, and Saveface are all apps that focus on universal design. They are simple, creative solutions for common problems— for both the average consumer and a person with disabilities. It is my goal to maintain consistent visual identity and present these apps as a reliable, consistent brand that is clean, clear and user friendly. I designed these apps to feel like they are a part of Google Glass, as if they belonged to Glass all along. Most importantly, it is imperative to keep these apps free of charge to maintain the theme of accessibility.
