Rasha Said’s son describes AWARE as “a sign you can hear.” 

 

The free Android and iOS app, created by Said, is for the blind and vision-impaired with all information conveyed by voice to the user. Utilizing iBeacons placed in specific areas and containing configurable information, AWARE can serve several different functions.

 

“If they want to learn more about their current location, they can get more information about it,” Said explained. “It also functions a lot like a GPS,  giving turn-by-turn directions. Since it updates them in real-time, it can help them stay on the right path.”
