Little Bear Sees and Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children proudly present their first collaborative app for those with cortical visual impairment (CVI). This innovative app allows the user to create two-dimensional object identification tasks using their own photos and voice.
Once you’ve uploaded a photo or image, you can choose what kind of reward will occur when the object is selected; a voice recording, movement or both. Arrange images on the play screen and then ask the student with CVI to touch a particular object. When touched, the object will respond with the reward action you’ve set. Customize the experience by arranging your photos into groups and selecting background images of varying levels of complexity to make the task more or less challenging. Identifying two-dimensional images can be particularly difficult for those with CVI and this app is the perfect format to offer customized practice in this area!
Though designed for students with CVI, this is a great app for parents or teachers working with any student to discriminate between different images! It can also be used to create a short talking picture story. Upload images from your day at the zoo, for example, record voice narration for each picture and arrange them on the play screen in any order you wish! Then just tap the pictures in sequence to tell your story.
