Application that visualizes the "sound" detected around and alarms

January 13, 2015
"Otosense"


Deaf/deaf persons may often encounter the situation that is fearful if delayed to notice sound to sense danger.

The new application "Otosense" may support them. Some specific sound is detected around the user, who will be warned by a flash or a vibration.

For example detecting the tone registered with a library, such as the fire alarm, the sound of glass broken, after the application is installed, software starts, sends a visual alert to the user's smart phone or tablet real time.

The excellent point about "Otosense" is that it works even without the Internet connectivity environment.

"OtoSense" is currently applied to only Android, and later also to iOS soon.
