C-Hear was founded in 2015 by Adena Harmon to help blind and visually impaired individuals enjoy a more rewarding online experience. This is a groundbreaking audio annotation technology that allows users to incorporate audio descriptions with still images and other visual content.
With C-Hear, any type of visual content can be made more functional and informative. You can add detailed information to everything from family photos to product images, and even include in-depth instructions with your training and educational materials.
C-Hear is an especially valuable tool for the visually impaired, giving them improved access to enhanced content online. With more than seven million visually impaired individuals in the United States, the potential to be ADA compliant is an especially important concern for websites.
Audio Annotation for eCommerce Websites
C-Hear enables eCommerce merchants to include audio descriptions with their product images, thereby providing a more satisfactory shopping experience for their customers. Through this revolutionary technology, eCommerce sites can reach a wider audience than ever before. This visually and audibly descriptive content provides better value than typical images.
C-Hear, the App
C-Hear has developed an app for iOS devices, which allows users to take pictures or choose images from their iPhone or iPad library. They can then record a message, add it to the image, and send the file to anyone.
Medical and Educational Uses
There are many ways medical and teaching professionals can utilize this new C-Hear technology. The system allows doctors to provide verbal descriptions of test results and scans, ensuring that patients have a better understanding of their condition. Medical professionals can also maintain the security and privacy of patient data by including HIPAA notices on images in patient files.
In the educational sphere, C-Hear makes it easy to incorporate questions and solutions into shared images. The system could improve the flow of communication between students and teachers, which in turn, enhances the learning process considerably.
Using C-Hear for content protection
C-Hear can be used to add audible watermarks for copyright protection purposes. By digitally marking images with C-Hear, visual artists, designers, photographers, and other content creators can prevent unauthorized use of their work.
