Apps for people with visual impairment

Apps to support people with low vision or who have a vision impairment.

There are a number of apps to assist people who have impaired vision. We have not been able to review all those available, but we have reviewed the Be My Eyes app.

App Description
This app connects people who are blind or with vision impairment to sighted volunteers for visual assistance through a live video call.

We have also identified independent organisations that have reviewed a number of apps for people with impaired vision. The following are lists of apps recommended by these independent organisations.
