    I'm so impressed with the tactile and auditory information the device provides. I haven't seen anything else like it that is as comprehensive and useful. My students have multiple disabilities, so it's not something they would be able to use independently, but I've been very happy so far with it and the kids I've tried it with this week have had positive responses to it. So far, so good!

    Thanks so much for telling me about the Feelif Pro!

    Remarkable woman Sabriye Tenberken, the developer of Tibetan Braille and co-founder of Braille Without Borders and Kanthari international, said: »We all liked it very much.«

    She is a winner of many honors and awards and she was also a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show titled: 8 Women Oprah Wants You to Know, segment Phenomenal Females: Sabriye Tenberken's Journey.

    This is her's testimonial about Feelif:

    We tested Feelif with 4 blind people. Two who are very techy and who work professionally in the IT field and two who are just users of computers and phones, including myself.
    I personally have never used a tablet and it took me a while to get familiar.
    Later, once I started to 'get the hang of it', my reaction was similar to one of the other three test persons. We all liked it very much.

    1. the tactile bumps help to navigate and to orientate on the screen. This makes it easy to understand where app you are on the screen. Especially for those who are not users of larger touch screens, it is a good entrance.

    2. All four blind persons including myself were very intrigued by the games and we tried all of them. We all felt it would be a great tool, especially for blind children in schools to be introduced to drawing, memory skills, games and any other strategy you can develop.

    “As a trainer, I think Feelif (especially its tablet versions) is a very interesting educational resource, which allows, in a simple, quick and personalized way, to respond to our student’s needs. For me, as an educator, one of the most interesting features is that the software allows you to build your one material, according to the specific subjects you are teaching and adapt them to the needs of my blind students. “

    What I love the most about Feelif is that you can play fun and interesting games and at the same time you can also practice orientation. With Feelif I can draw, learn math and even Braille, which is great. My favorite games are Memory and Battleships.

  • Diane Brauner

    Diane Brauner

    Manager, Paths to Technology

    About Learning Braille: A number of preschool Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVIs) had the opportunity to try Feelif Creator; these TVI’s loved the braille games! The haptic vibration provides unique feedback of isolated dot positions, encouraging emerging braille students to focus on individual dots and the critical spatial relationships between each dot. The gentle vibrations also help students to develop good finger sensitivity required to feel braille dots.

    Diane Brauner is also a teacher and a parent. She is the manager of the Paths to Technology website and she collaborates on a variety of educational assistive technology projects, including training TVIs on iPad accessibility. She is also a COMS with 25 years experience who loves to integrate assistive technology into O&M lessons.

About Shapes: While a fun game in itself, this game provides important foundation skills for more complex games such as the Feelif Graphing games. Feelif Shape is an innovative way to teach shapes on a digital platform; being able to "feel" the shape on a flat touch screen is amazing! There are numerous possibilities of how this game can be expanded.

Our kids tested Feelif at a workshop. Ashton liked all the games, and Maisie loved to draw using the Draw application, and she found it easier to draw than on our Apple tablet. Both of them loved Feelif. As parents, we think that Feelif can be really helpful to visually impaired kids, especially those with more serious sight loss. It is great that Ashton and Maisie were able to learn and use Feelif without our help.

I had the opportunity to try the Feelif devices with students and myself.  They are innovative products for the blind and visually impaired and can also be used by sighted people. The Feelif devices offer a lot of opportunities; from games that can be played independently or with outside help, to apps for teachers that help explain and present abstract concepts to students. Feelif is a very useful tool for the blind and visually impaired.

I loved Feelif Gamer, as it is exactly what a blind person needs. The explanation and the promotion was very professional. It was obvious to me that there was a lot of though and effort put into making these devices. Great!

Feelif is wonderful. As I am visually impaired, and as I can never be sure when I'll loose my sight, I feel priviledged that I had the chance to test the Feelif device now. It makes me very happy that people spend time making devices for the blind and visually impaired. I can understand how the devices are very helpful.

This was our first time at such an event and definitely not the last. A welcoming atmosphere consisting of people with stories similar to ours. Interesting and pleasant guests and a lovely and relaxing break. It was nice to be able to talk to people who understand the needs of my child and who share their knowledge, experiences and opinions.

You guys are great.

Thank you

I like Feelif because it has adapted games and Menus. I also enjoyed original sound effects. I also like the application for drawing Draw which also contains realistic sounds of instruments.

About Farm game: Students of all ages and abilities thoroughly enjoyed this game! Educators liked how students learned to pay attention to the spatial location of each animal and to recall that information when asked to find that specific type of animal. Students also had the opportunity to learn to drag the screen in an organized manner in order to efficiently find the animals.

Hello, my name is Urh Štrakl.
I have borrowed Feelif for one week and I would like to give an opinion on the product.
I very much like the Feelif because it is a great device for the blind.
Applications are well developed and have a really friendly interface. With the application Feelif Draw it is easy to draw because the vibrations and sounds are just perfect!
I would also like to commend gestures for use and quick access to various functions, for example, gesture behind.
I am very pleased with the product, because I’ve learned practically all in one week.

I wish you every success and many achievements on the development of applications and software!

Mia is on holidays. It is probably not necessary to point out that Feelif is always with her. She plays Memory eagerly and is trying to be better each time. At highest difficulty she has the time score below a minute already!

Memory is the best game ever. I love playing it with Brina and my dad. My favourite category is weather because the sounds are really great.




Jera Rak

mother of a 7 year old blind girl Joana

Feelif Memory is an amazing game!!! We are playing it very often, mostly three players together which is more fun. Sixteen cards are just right to remember and Joana follows the game easily. We love the variety of the set, especially Joana. Her favourites are vehicle, kitchen and weather sounds.

Feelif Tic-tac-toe is great for kids. They are able to choose different playing symbols like lion, horse, ghost ...

Joana manages the learning Braille app easily. It is also a great excercise for fine motor skills because of fine movements and repeated pressing on exact spots.

I tested Feelif for one day, and I can say that it was a really nice day. I liked the vibrations when touching the dots and that the tablet told me what I was doing. I really enjoyed using Feelif and I was able to learn to use it really fast. The other applications are also very good, but the best thing was that I could use it without others' help.





Youssef

I tested feelif for a day. I liked the tactile sensations of the tablet and the applications. I would rather see that only the dots would vibrate, rather than the whole tablet. I didn't like that the dots were covering the picture, as I still have some sight. But it was good that I was able to use the tablet without help.

I tested Feelif. I liked the sounds and that the device tells you what you're doing. As I am visually impaired, I found the dots a little distracting, and I wish that the screen could be bigger. However, I think Feelif is appropriate for learning braille, playing games, and with the apps like Memory you can learn new sounds. I was able to use it without help.

I enjoy playing Snakes and Ladders, Farm game and Learning Braille. You can use Feelif to learn to write Braille, and I was positively surprised by TalkBack, as I otherwise use Ipad’s VoiceOver.
