Due to my disability, I am unable to make and receive calls on my phone. Sesame, a smartphone app designed for people with disabilities, came to my rescue when I downloaded it last week. I never knew there was a possibility of me using my smartphone to make a call without my caregiver.
I can now make calls without seeking the assistance of my caregiver and without my caregiver waiting for me to finish up on the phone to help hang-up calls. I can now speak confidentially to whoever I need to have a conversation with on my smartphone.
Sesame was introduced to me through a door-to-door outreach program. It was actually not the first advanced assistive application I have on my smartphone; however, it is the first I had total control of. With my smartphone well connected to my seat and positioned before my face, the application's innovation can track my eye movement through my smartphone front camera. The sound of my voice starts the application, and from that point, the assistive outcomes are inestimable.
I would gladly recommend Sesame to anyone with disabilities who owns a smartphone. They only need to download the free application to take total control of their smartphone. The app can be downloaded from all smartphone app stores and there are many ways to use this innovative application depending on how each user explores it. Some users even use the assistive Sesame app to control their digital home gadget.
For me, Sesame has completely changed the way I interact with my family and friends. The application gave me the freedom I needed. I am really appreciative that such a wonderful application is made available for people with disabilities.
