Samsung Expands Galaxy Core Advance Experience with Specialized Usability Accessories


March 14, 2014

New accessories continue Samsung's commitment to innovation for all to experience
 


Seoul, Korea – March 14, 2014 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has expanded its powerful Galaxy device user experience with three new accessories for users of the Galaxy Core Advance mobile device that require special assistance. The Ultrasonic Cover, Optical Scan Stand, and Voice Label enhance the Galaxy Core Advance with tools for a universally flawless user experience at an affordable price. Through research and in-depth interviews, these accessories were specially designed with the needs of specific communities in mind.

The three new assistive technology accessories, which easily connect with the Galaxy Core Advance, enrich the stock of accessibility features on the device intended to assist disabled and visually impaired users.

 • The Ultrasonic Cover allows users to detect obstacles and navigate unfamiliar places by sending an alert through a
   vibration or TTS feedback. By holding the Cover in front of the user, it can enhance a visually impaired user’s awareness
   of their surroundings by sensing the presence of a person or object up to 2 meters away. 
 • The Optical Scan Stand positions the device to focus on printed materials, automatically activating the Optical Scan
   application, which recognizes text from an image and reads it aloud to the user. The Optical Scan Stand is particularly
   useful when a consumer is alone, automatically initiating the application to read text as soon as paper is sensed on
   the stand.  
 • The Voice Label assists users in distinguishing objects by allowing them to make notes and tag voice labels easily
   on-the-go. With NFC technology enabling a seamless connection to their smartphones, users can record, stop
   and access their notes. This feature can also help a user distinguish how to use electronics by allowing them to
   record a short explanation.

Galaxy Core Advance extends the Galaxy Experience to everyone. It sports a large 4.7” display and delivers a range of smart features, including S Voice, S Translator, Sound & Shot, Group Play and Easy Mode, providing users with the same unique benefits provided by other products in the popular Galaxy series. These tools join the pre-loaded Light Sensing App, Instant Voice Recorder, and Voice Guided Camera as critical usability and accessibility features specifically designed to extend the Galaxy experience to disabled and visually impaired users.

The new Galaxy Core Advance accessories are already available and are offered separately from the device.
Samsung plans to expand accessibility of other Galaxy devices in the future.
