iVisit is working on an application called SeeScan that can help blind people identify everyday objects around them, which we take for granted. The program uses your cameraphone to detect objects using image recognition software, while reading aloud what the phone identifies it as.
There are many practical applications, like telling the difference between denominations of paper money for example. It could certainly make life easier for the blind and may help them speed up some of their activities during their typical day.
It’s a great use of a cameraphone and we think the blind may just end up using this app or something very like it on a daily basis.
