TapTapSee is a mobile camera application designed specifically for blind and visually impaired users, powered by the could image recognition API . TapTapSee utilizes your device’s camera and VoiceOver functions to take a picture or video of anything and identify it out loud for you.

Double-tap the right side of the screen to take a picture or double-tap the left side of the screen to take a video. TapTapSee can accurately analyze and identify any two or three dimensional object at any angle within seconds. The device’s VoiceOver then speaks the identification aloud.


Color ID Free

Color Identifier uses the camera on your phone to speak the names of colors in real-time.
It's a new Augmented Reality app for discovering the names of the colors around you!
The color names are fun and specific: Paris Daisy, Lavender Rose, Moon Mist, and many more.
It can be a useful app for the blind and visually impaired, but I think it's fun for everyone.
It will also tell you the hex value of the color, so you can identify exactly what color the camera sees


Be My Eyes

Every day, sighted volunteers lend their eyes to solve tasks big and small to help blind and low-vision people lead more independent lives.

Blind or low-vision person requests assistance

As a blind or low-vision person, whenever you need visual assistance, our volunteers are happy to help. Through the live video call, you and a volunteer can communicate directly and solve a problem. The volunteer will help guide which direction to point your camera, what to focus on or when to turn on your torch.

Sighted volunteer receives video call

As a sighted volunteer you can help just by installing the Be My Eyes app. A blind or a low-vision user may need help with anything from checking expiry dates, distinguishing colors, reading instructions or navigating new surroundings.
