Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Jun 30, 2019

Show Summary:

The Free WayAround App and Tags allow one to record descriptions, notes, game instructions easily by using your smart phone and the Near Field Communication (NFC) to read and label the Way Tags. With the ability to record 2,000 characters in the descriptions, the possibilities are limitless. Labeling files, containers, appliance logs, audio equipment and the list is only limited by your imagination.

Jessica Hipp joined Jeff Thompson in the Blind Abilities Studio to talk about the WayAround product line and the Free WayAround App available for Apple iOS and Android. When Jeff read about her father, Darwin Belt, he contacted Jessica and wanted to share her father’s story and talk about the WayAround Tags and WayAround App.

Join Jessica and Jeff for this informative discussion about smart tags, creation out of necessity and how you can quickly begin to start your WayAround Tagging.
