Blind People Can Enjoy The Solar Eclipse by Eclipse Soundscapes App

Yesterday, millions of Americans armed with protective glasses have marvelled at the first total solar eclipse to unfold from coast to coast in the US in nearly a century. And some students at the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind also experienced the solar eclipse like others. How it happened? Keep on reading for more details. And top app rank boosting service also available here.

Actually, The NASA Heliophysics Education Consortium created the free application, Eclipse Soundscapes, which gives visually impaired students a multisensory experience of the solar eclipse. The app walked people through the science of solar eclipse, explaining the astronomical event's progression in real time. 

The app, which is available for iOS and Android, will offer real-time narration for users based on what the eclipse is doing in their specific area. So, even though they won't be able to see what's happening, they'll be able to hear a fairly accurate description specific to where they are in the country. Aptly named Eclipse Soundscapes, it was made in part thanks to a grant from NASA.

Designed for the visually impaired by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, NASA and the National Center for Accessible Media, the interactive app uses vocal descriptions and different tones to translate “images of key eclipse features into a series of unique frequency modulated tones," mapping out variations in light. 

Anyway, Eclipse Soundscapes app can help blind people to enjoy the solar eclipse with us. Keep your eyes here for the latest mobile app news. BTW, you can also get app store optimization services here that can boost your app rank. Contact us now!
