Computer programmers working with SuperNova's development tools are creating amazingly accessible and usable experiences optimised for a wide range of people who are blind or have low vision.

Streaming music, fun Braille games and voice recognition tools are just some of the innovative projects taking advantage of: SuperNova's API, Lua scripting engine and SAM SDK.

"A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks. A programmer then puts the blocks together."

Explains James Bowden, blind software developer and product tester with Dolphin.

Recent projects harnessing the power of SuperNova's features for developers include:

Blindspot - Windowless access to Spotify premium music streaming service. Speaks via screen reader without taking focus away from your application.

Dotris - Braille Wall building game uses Dolphin SAM SDK to output to a range of Braille displays:

Why develop for SuperNova?

  • Integrate support in your projects for the widest possible range of people with visual impairments.
  • Generate custom messages designed specifically for users who are blind or low vision without redesigning your graphical user interface.
  • Easily support dozens of popular Braille displays and Text to Speech Synthesisers from within your existing project.
  • Create a self-voicing app that allows the screen reader user to retain control of speech and Braille parameters.
  • When appropriate, programmatically adjust magnification, speech and Braille parameters to get user's attention.
