Giving Back to the Community with Syncfusion's WPF and UWP Suites

See how Balague provided a new level of independence for visually impaired people to read and reconcile their own financial documents with our WPF and UWP controls.

Challenge and Solution

After he retired, independent developer Josep Balague did a lot of volunteering in the visually impaired community. Doing so, he noticed a niche he felt could be filled by a particular app, and he knew he had the skills to build it. Many visually impaired people, he saw, were dependent on other people to keep their personal accounting and bills up-to-date, read and reconcile their financial documents, and even purchase tickets.

“That is why this project was born,” said Balague. “I intend to give it free of charge to the Spanish Visually Impaired Organization for its affiliates in the future.”

However, Balague had trouble getting off the ground with his new project, unable to find suitable controls. “I was tired of trials, free controls that did not do what I needed,” said Balague. “After hours of testing, I found the Syncfusion Community License.”

Balague was pleasantly surprised by the dark theme available with Syncfusion’s controls, because it was similar to high contrast, important for his project. He was also pleased with the great variety of options for the WPF schedule control with PDFs and OCR, as well as the platform harmonization, and, especially, the patience, speed, and willingness to explain of the post-sales service.

Balague is now working on the second phase of his project, involving migration to UWP and voice response integration. With the help of Syncfusion’s controls, he hopes to soon serve his community by providing another level of independence to visually impaired people like himself.
