Sound notifications are used under many circumstances by devices to alert users about something. However, hearing impaired or deaf people can't detect those notifications. At least they can make use of Visualfy, an Android application capable of creating visual or sensorial notifications to alert those people. The app is fully adapted to the international sign language (ISL).
How Visualfy works
How it works is really simple. In the first place, you have to assign a series of colors or vibration patterns to each notification you receive on your phone. We're talking about all sorts of events, from WhatsApp message to low battery warnings. Once configured, you won't miss out on any notifications due to not hearing them. Furthermore, one of the most interesting things is that you can develop your very own vibration pattern with a tool built into the app. Just start recording, tap the screen a few times, and save that vibration with a name to assign it to the events of your choice.
It's not an app, it's a social project that needs your help.
Apps of this nature are really contributing towards the integration of hearing impaired collectives in our society, making it fairer. Only an active role in this kind of situation that affects people with hearing problems will allow us to look forward to a better future.
