What does the app do?
Be My Eyes is a communication app where a person with blindness or low vision connects to people with sight, or industry representatives, through a video call.
The aim of the app is to provide immediate, easy-to-use support for people with blindness and low vision. For example, you point your smartphone camera at things and get help seeing what they are. The app rings, a droning ring, until both sides are connected. It is a free service and is currently available in 12 countries, including New Zealand.
The technology matches people based on language and time zone, so volunteers are only contacted during daytime hours. App users can also get technology support from the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk. For the complete app description, go to Google Play, iTunes or the app website.
