Samsung has unveiled a new case for its Galaxy Core Advance smartphone that aims to improve accessibility for people with sight difficulties.

The Ultrasonic Cover sends vibration or Text-to-Speech alerts whenever an object comes within two meters of the front of the case.

The idea is that visually impaired users can hold their phone in front of themselves and navigate around rooms.

As well as the cover, Samsung unveiled a stand that works with the galaxy Core Advance to allow for automatic reading of written material, along with an NFC-based Voice Label, which allows users to easily record notes.

Samsung said it developed the tools after conducting in-depth interviews with disabled and visually impaired people.
