Samsung has announced a range of accessories for the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance, which is the successor to the Galaxy Core. The new accessories are specially designed for disabled and visually impaired users and complement the existing features like the Optical Scan, Light Sensing technology, Instant Voice Recorder, Screen Curtain, TTS (Text-to-Speech) functionalities and Voice Guided Camera functions.

The first of the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance accessory is Ultrasonic Cover, which allows the user to detect obstacles (up to 2 meters away) and navigate unfamiliar places by sending an alert through a vibration or TTS feedback. There is also the Optical Scan Stand that positions the device to focus on printed materials, automatically activating the Optical Scan application, which recognizes text from an image and reads it aloud to the user.
