Be My Eyes is an app that remotely connects visually impaired people with sighted volunteers who can help them with daily tasks through a simple video call.
Through a direct video call the app gives blind people the opportunity to ask a sighted volunteer for help, for tasks that require normal vision. The blind person “lends” the helper’s eyes all through his or her smartphone. The sighted helper is able to see and describe what the blind person is showing the sighted helper by filming with the video camera in the smartphone. That way, by working together they are able to solve the problem that the blind person is facing.
So i downloaded this app called “Be my eyes” awhile ago. You get FaceTime calls from blind people all over the world & help them with whatever task it is that they need help w/. I just got my first call & helped this lady pick out almond milk. Something so small made her day ?? pic.twitter.com/iCCvVBdgw0
