Talking camera app for people who are blind using AI and augmented reality
Microsoft Inc., the ICT-multinational company, developed Seeing AI, a free mobile talking camera app using Artificial Intelligence and augmented reality. The app helps people who are blind or have low vision to know more about who and what is around them. It assists users to perform daily tasks, such as reading a document, recognizing people, or identifying products. Seeing AI is available in 70 countries and nine languages and has assisted with over 20 million tasks.
“At Seeing AI we are always talking to people with visual impairments to understand their challenges.”
