Humane is virtual sensory software platform that allows visually impaired users to perform tasks on their smartphones which they can’t perform normally, according to sources.
Reports say Humane was developed by Victor Shoaga, Ayodele Obasegun, Oyatope Blessing and Otaru Babatunde, all students of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at the Obafemi Awolowo University, as a presentation for the 2014 Microsoft Imagine Cup. This is why it is still only available on the Windows Phone platform.
Sources say Humane makes smartphone operation easier for the visually impaired. It helps them select music files, play selected videos (though they can only listen), surf the web, set or check the time, and so on.
Humane, is an application software (not available for public download). It was developed for companies who are prospective buyers to add their own modifications to it, although individual buyers will still find it useful as it is, investigations reveal.
                                    THE HUMANE CONTROLLER

It is a software that comes with a manual controller .The software itself is downloaded into the user’s phone and then the user is given the controller and an identification number. The identification number is entered into the software for compatibility with the controller, meaning only one controller is able to work with a single software.
The manual controller has two dongles for scrolling and a central “select” button, making it’s operation as easy as it can be.
The app also has a voice guide to notify when Humane has been successfully activated but the biggest merit is that for an app they can do so much, it connection is simply by Bluetooth – the same way two phones are connected for file sharing.

The entire project is still in its developmental stages but this is one of the most useful and ingenious applications of tech you will find this side of the world.
