Who is BASIS?

BASIS is a charity to help those that are hard of sight and Roybot has partnered with them to develop a Skill that can be used by everyone!

As our Skills function off auditory cues, our Skill can be used by those that are hard of sight!


How do our Skills help aid the blind and visually impaired?

Our Skill relies on auditory queues to function, meaning it is suitable for those who are visually impaired to interact with our voice assistant. The app can help its users become independent by providing them the ability to access information on the charity without assistance.

Features include:

  • Contact Us – access the phone number of the BASIS charity
  • About Us – Learn all about the BASIS charity
  • Activities – Find out what activities the charity is hosting
  • Volunteering – hear information about volunteering for the charity
  • Who is involved – learn about who is involved at BASIS

To activate the Skill, just say “Alexa, launch BASIS charity!”

Why Custom Skills are Perfect for Those Hard of Sight

Artificial Intelligence

Custom Skills use ‘Artificial Intelligence’ technology.

Voice assistants allow you to learn information without the need to read

‘Voice assistants’ provide a hands-free experience for all, without the need for a screen!
