The phone was unveiled by National Association for the Blind amongst its students and faculty. NAB is the largest non-government, voluntary organization in India.

With a very simple user interface, the phone has a robust ‘no-frills’ design with lots of entertainment and utility features like wireless FM radio, audio player, expandable memory up to 2 GB, torch light, auto call record, mobile tracker, dedicated one-touch key for locking the keypad, a phone and SMS memory of 1000 contacts and 250 messages respectively.

Developed at Intex’s Centre for Design & Development, the Dual SIM phone (GSM+GSM) has a large Braile keypad to facilitate recognition of digits. People, who are not conversant with Braile, could switch on the ‘Talking Keypad’ feature which speaks out in English the number they have pressed.

Keeping in mind communication needs in emergency, the phone has a unique SOS feature which allows you to save four emergency numbers. By pressing the SOS button, the call gets automatically directed to the first emergency number.

Priced at Rs 2600 (street price), INTEX Vision is an example of technological advancement to make life more enjoyable for the differently-abled.
