A Global Network Of Eyes Gives Sight To the Blind
Be My Eyes app uses active video-chat to connect volunteers and the visually-impaired
For a person with perfect vision, it might be difficult to imagine struggling with reading directions on a map or looking at a product’s nutritional information. But for a visually-impaired person, sometimes the simplest tasks require assistance. Be My Eyes is an app that connects the blind to global volunteers through a live-video chat. A volunteer can help with activities such as describing a picture or figuring out the train schedule.
