Fleksy is an award-winning application that replaces your smartphone or hand-held device’s on-screen keyboard. It features an auto-correct system powerful enough to work even when you don’t look at the screen. Powered by Syntellia’s patent pending technologies, Fleksy uses the familiar QWERTY layout, coupled with the most powerful text prediction engine out there.
For visually impaired users, the ubiquity of touchscreens has enabled incredible applications. The iPhone has even been called “the biggest development since braille.” Unfortunately, touchscreens have also made typing a lot harder on these devices. This prevents the 40 million visually impaired people across the world from using such devices to their full potential for content creation and communication. Fleksy levels the playing field and allows for equality of accessibility to smartphone users, enabling the visually impaired to type three to four times faster — even faster than a lot of sighted users.
The frustration of typing on touchscreens and portable devices does not only affect the visually impaired; it is a universal issue, and Fleksy’s free downloadable software provides a solution. Phone manufacturers spend billions of dollars trying to solve the text input problem on mobile, and Fleksy solved the problem in 2011 — its first year of business.
