New interface on prototype can help the blind text plus use everyday tools like maps.
Some objectives that come to mind when discussing the purpose of technology are making life easier, making information more accessible, and making society more inclusive.

Yet unnamed, the phone is the culmination of three years of work by Dagar and his team, which is currently collaborating with IIT Delhi on a prototype.
