Smartphone designs are incredibly useful for those with full sight but are rather difficult or impossible to use by those with visual impairments. The 'Textura' phone aims to offer users the ability to perform various actions on the phone without having to rely on voice prompts in order to do so.

The 'Textura' phone incorporates a Braille surface that changes and adapts to the various data and information that is displayed. The 'Textura' also features a headphone jack that enables those with visual impairments to plug in headphones in order to listen to information that comes through on the device.

The 'Textura' phone is the design work of Isa Velarde and offers a bevy of great features for those with visual impairments.
