WayAround – Just Tag and Scan! On Demand Details On Anything and Everything!
The Blind Abilities Team rolled through Orlando and met up with a lot of venders, people and quite a few guide dogs as well. We captured some stories and got some great chats with vendors exhibiting their wares in the exhibit hall. Way Around was showing off there new IOS App and the stickers, magnets, buttons and tags that can be labeled. Using NFC technology this product seems to be a great way to identify just about anything.

From the Developer:
WayAround is the smart assistant that gives o n-demand details about everyday things for anyone with blindness or vision loss. The simple tag-and-scan approach lets you quickly and easily identify what’s around you. The result? Better information, faster! Use the app with our smart WayTags™ to add a description and other helpful information to items around your home and office. WayTags come as stickers, magnets, buttons, or clips, so you can tag anything and everything. It also works as an audio labeling system for those with good eyesight. How does it work? WayAround uses NFC technology (that’s Near Field Communication) to give you information when you need it. Use the app in Tagger mode to add a description and other details to your WayTags. Once you’ve listed everything you want to know, just hold your device close to the WayTag to write your information. After tagging an item, use Scanner mode to scan a WayTag anytime to hear the description and details. You can scan with your NFC-enabled smart device or a WayLink™. WayAround works seamlessly with VoiceOver and other accessibility devices, including braille displays. The interface uses high-contrast colors, icons, and large font, making WayAround accessible for anyone with any degree of vision loss, including those who are blind, low vision, vision impaired, deafblind, colorblind, and sighted.
