Braille Application "Braille Touch," a free smartphone application, which simplifies Braille texting for the blind, points to restore keyboard possibilities for the majority of the smartphone market. Researchers at Georgia Tech have created a smart phone app that lets users type in an alphabet very similar to Braille. This application is intended for the visually impaired, but can be useful to many others as well. The costless Braille app could revolutionize texting. Braille touch is an easy to use, far from complicated application that will soon be available on Iphones and Andriod touchscreen smartphones. This application is based on Computer Braille, which is a method of typing that allows users to enter up to 63 characters by pressing different combinations of only six simple buttons. There are three dots found on each side of the touch screen, known as the six buttons. When using this system, users hold the phone facing away from the body, using their middle three fingers of each hand to chord in letters, numbers and characters such as question marks and exclamation points. Also, the user simply swiping their finger across the screen can enter spaces and backspaces. According to Georgia Tech researchers, “some visually impaired people were able to reach up to 32 words per minute with 92% accuracy with a prototype app for the iPhone.” It is said that typing with this app is up to six times faster than past methods for texting without sight. Availability to equipment for the visually impaired is a rising topic due to the abundance of touchscreens. Experts say that current technology for the visually impaired such as voice over systems are efficient, but slow. Also, most technology made to help the visually impaired type, such as attaching hardware braille keyboards, can cost from hundreds to thousands of dollars. This Braille touch app will be free.

...Application Changing a Promotion System Read the Applications case study, changing a Promotion System, found on page 532-533 in your textbook. Answer the questions that fall after the case description; these are the three questions found in the lower half of page 533. Each question should be numbered, answered separately, and be at least 300 words in length but should be submitted as one file. 1. What is the likely cause of CSD’s problems? The likely cause of CSD’s problems is that they are not realizing the logic of prediction and that is not really a good way of viewing things and in this case the selection decision. Employee Tom and his performance in the Bioglass Company as a sale associate cannot and shouldn’t be viewed as a predictor of how he would be as a manager. The KSAOs required for success as a sales associate (e.g., sales techniques) are very different than the KSAOs needed to succeed as a manager (e.g., delegation, providing feedback, setting goals) (Heneman III, Judge, & Kammeyer-Mueller, 2012). 2. How might CSD, and Bioglass more generally, make better promotion decisions in the future? Be specific. CSD and Bioglass can make better decision promotion in the future by improving the overall selection process by incorporating some additional assessment methods into their hiring process. Those methods are specifically designed to assess the KSAOs needed for the offered job. Some appropriate methods for the managerial jobs include job...

...Google Maps is an application that was released by Google for Android, which is an alternative to Apple's built-in maps application. Google Maps for mobile service can work with or without a GPS receiver. The "my location" feature uses the GPS / Assisted GPS location of the mobile device, if available, supplemented by determining the nearest wireless networks and cell sites. The software looks up the location of the cell site using a database of known wireless networks and sites. By triangulating the different signal strengths from different cell transmitters and then using their location property (retrieved from the online cell site database), My Location determines the user's current location. Wireless network location method is calculated by discovering the nearby WiFi hotspots and using their location property (retrieved from the online WiFi database, in the same way as the cell site database) to further discover the user's location. The software plots the streets in blue that are available with a yellow icon and a green circle around the estimated range of the cell site based on the transmitter's rated power. The estimate is refined using the strength of the cell phone signal to estimate how close to the cell site the mobile device is.  (2008-12-15)[update]Up until iOS 6, the built-in maps application on iOS was powered by Google Maps.[3] However, with the release of the first iOS 6 beta in June 2012, Apple announced that they had created their own map service.[4]......

Braille Essay

...what you were feeling was a Braille clock. The thuds were there to inform you to check the time. Those who were blind, were often left behind. They would almost never be as successful as those who could see. This was true, until the invention of Braille, which gave a light of hope to those who were blind. a 15 year old Louis Braille from Coupvray, France, liberated them from the world of darkness. Braille, which was invented by a 15 year old Louis Braille from Coupvray, France, is a form of writing using an array of six small and large dots. It has become a writing system for those who are blind. Since the invention of Braille, thousands of books have been translated using the system to give the blind the same experience. A girl named Helen Keller, who was both blind and deaf, learned Braille and was finally able to communicate with people outside her family. She told the world of her life, of her thoughts and feelings. She became an inspiration to millions of people, and without Braille, she might still be trapped with in the walls of darkness. In 1998 through 1999, there were approximately 55,200 legally blind children in the United States. Tens of thousands of children who before never had a chance to read and experience the wonders of reading a book now could, thanks to the Braille system. They can now pick up a book and go read whenever they want to. They can now tell time thanks to Braille on their watch and even read signs with Braille printed on them. The blind......

Application Layer

...process the task only. Every layer does only specific work. I have chooses application layer from the OSI model because the world experiences the Internet through the use of the World Wide Web, e-mail, and file-sharing programs. These applications, as well as others, provide the human interface to the underlying network, allowing you to send and receive information with relative ease. Most of the applications are intuitive; they can be accessed and used without the need to know how they work. As we continue to study the world of networking, it becomes more important to know how an application is able to format, transmit, and interpret messages that are sent and received across the network. INTRODUCTION Application layer is the highest most layers in OSI and TCP/IP layered model and this layer exists in both layered Models because of its significance which is interacting with user and user applications. This layer is for applications which are involved in communication system. A user may or may not directly interacts with these applications. Application layer is where the actual communication is initiated and reflects. Because this layer is on the top of the layer stack it does not serve any other layers. Application layer takes the help of Transport and all layers below it to communicate or transfer its data to the remote host.When an application layer protocol wants to communicate with its peer application layer protocol on remote hosts it hands over the data or information......

...Introduction I hope that what you are about to read will not only show the kind of person I am, but why I would make an excellent addition to the Arkham Staff! Below I will break down my application into various topics that I feel that should be addressed. Why I Think I Qualify For Staff There are a number of reasons why I believe I would qualify for a shot at a position as Staff on Arkham. The first reason being friendly and helpful throughout the community. I may not be extremely well known throughout Arkham (my constant name changing doesn't help that either), but I do my best to help those that are in need of help. I try to stop flame wars that may arise in chat and I am always on the lookout for trouble makers. The second reason why I think I qualify for Staff is prior experience. I have held several different Staff positions ranging from Helper all the way up to Administrator. Arkham has high expectations for their Staff and I am willing to push myself above and beyond these expectations. I have studied and completely understand which punishment should be given out when an issue arises. The third reason is that I am very well experienced with commands, what they do, and when to use them or not. Abuse of any command in any way, shape, or form is completely unacceptable in my own eyes. I personally do not like it when anything is abused, such as exploits, but when commands are being abused, that is an entire different ball game. The final reason why I......

...Applications of the Scientific Method: Everyday Life Selina Mathieu Strayer University Professor Olivia Uitto SCI 110 August 9, 2015 The scientific method is a process for experimentation used to explore observations and answer questions. It is used unconsciously by many on a daily basis and understanding how to apply the method can be valuable in making decisions and solving problems. For this assignment, I have chosen to use the scientific method to demonstrate how to organize my cluttered apartment to fit two storage units thus eliminating two bills and lowering my debt. First I will ask a question or make an observation such as how will I fit two storage units into my small apartment or observe if there is enough space for them both. I could also break down the observations a bit more by laying out sizes of the units compared to my apartment and see if it is possible to fit everything inside while still able to live comfortably or get rid of some items. My first observation is that one of my storage units is small and would not take up a lot of room. I also have a lot of extra items in my unit that I could donate to family or thrift shops for a good tax write off down the road. I have also noticed that getting rid of the smaller unit will be quick thus leaving me with more time to figure out how to empty the bigger unit. The bigger unit will take more time to empty and may be needed for a couple more months. ...

...HRM410: Strategic Staffing Application Form Assignment YOUR NAME: You are the new HR manager for this fictitious (private sector) company, which has hundreds of employees and is clearly obligated under Title VII and other major employment regulations. Rather than starting over from scratch with a brand new application form, many HR managers would likely take a look at the existing form first. Using the table located at the very bottom of this document, identify the ten (10) items that are legally problematic* on this employment application form, why they are problematic, and what could possibly be in their place, if applicable. Use of the table is required. When you are done “save” or “save as” this document with your last name, then first initial and assignment name (e.g. SmithLApplForm.docx) and place your name in the table box above. Then load it to your Dropbox by end of Week 6. Please email your instructor if you have any questions. *By problematic we are looking for possible violations of various employment regulations. Note that some may not be blatantly illegal, but, rather problematic and best to avoid as a best practice. One final tip: Do not focus on stylist elements such as the layout of the application form or questions you do not “like.” Focus only on the legally problematic items.

If the company still ignore my return and fail to take advantage of my word experience abroad, I will quit and change other job, because I cannot see the prospects and potential development in the future for this company. Global business experience and market resource have become the most valuable fortunes for me after three-year overseas assignment, which can attract more competitors in the same industry to hire me. 2. If I were the company management, I would take some steps to change the attitude towards Andrea’s return when I recognized that few people were enthusiastic about this thing. The organizational culture, attitude, and spirits need to be changed by management team. I need to set new compensation and incentive systems for the returned employees who have successfully finished the overseas assignments and increased the market shares and profit margins. As many companies grow across the globe, the company should pay more attention on hiring employees who have global business skills. 3. Andrea’s work experience abroad is critical and necessary for the company who expand its market share across abroad. Working in another country can open up opportunities to develop new skills and have new experiences. From the employer’s perspective, clients are looking for professionals......
