C-Hear for Education

One of the most significant challenges faced by educators is the inability to address the needs of visually impaired people over the Internet. For all of its benefits, the Internet is a mostly visual medium that places a large segment of the population at a severe disadvantage. There are more than seven million visually impaired people in the United States alone. Without the aid of audio-assisted visual technology, this sizable segment of the population is unable to get the full educational benefit of image files on the Internet.

A Richer Educational Experience

For people with vision related challenges, accessing visual content in the educational sphere is a formidable obstacle, and it is often the responsibility of educators to circumvent these challenges. C-Hear offers an ideal solution. This revolutionary, new technology enables educators and content creators to share image content with integrated audio. That means visually impaired people can experience a more rewarding education and experience.

The possibilities offered by C-Hear are virtually limitless. Image files can now include audio annotations that provide added information. Teachers and students are able to share questions and solutions within a single image, further enhancing the education and learning process. By improving website accessibility, C-Hear gives users much more educational value from the content they access.

A Dual Approach to Learning

With C-Hear, students will be able to learn visually as well as audibly. This not only benefits visually impaired students but all other learners too. Students receive a more comprehensive range of information and educators can provide more thorough instruction with greater detail and clarity than ever before.

Advantages of Video Without the Drawbacks

With the addition of audio to images, C-Hear provides many of the same advantages as video content. However C-Hear audio files load much more quickly without the buffering inherent in video content. Educators are able to share content much more effectively without having to deal with the limitations of video.
