Austin Seraphin sees through sound.
It’s sound that allows him to code, to give tours at the Penn Museum and to get to Indy Hall, the coworking space where he is a member. Seraphin uses a technique called echolocation, one that is not yet prevalent in the blind community, Newsworks reported in a story about Seraphin, inspired by his Ignite Philly talk.
Seraphin won the 2013 Philly Geek Award for Visual Artist of the Year for his Braille Street Art and has spoken at meetups like the Philadelphia Accessibility Forum on making software accessible. A podcast is next, he announced on his blog.
