     It's very simple, we just want to make the world accessible and this is the tool to do the job. SightCompass 2.0 is a powerful tool used to broadcast and receive information relating to one's current environment. This information can include the description of a room, the layout of buttons on a television remote control, directions for operating fixtures in a restroom and even information about items on a restaurant menu. The information that SightCompass can offer is nearly endless. This information is obtained by using a FREE App on a Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone.* Upon opening the app, content will begin to appear as the SightCompass Beacons are located. By using a mobile screen-reader such as VoiceOver the user will have access to the information via audio output. This means that all of the information that the SightCompass Beacon is broadcasting is essentially read out loud to the end-user. With this being said, the SightCompass network is ideal for persons with blindness, vision loss, dyslexia, anxiety disorders, hard of hearing, learning challenges and with a Bluetooth Braille display Deaf-Blind.
