NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – I’ve talked about a “Be My Eyes” app before, though it recently got a large refurbish and now Android users can download it.
It’s an inventive app that allows people who CAN see, assistance people who can’t.
When a blind chairman needs assistance creation certain a shirt they’re going to wear matches a pants they’ve picked out.
Or maybe saying if a divert in a fridge has expired. The blind chairman opens a “Be My Eyes” app.
A sighted chairman who’s also downloaded a app – and volunteers to assistance – gets a presentation on their phone.
“I need some help. How many sodium?”
The blind chairman points their camera during what they wish to see and a proffer serves as their eyes over a live video connection. “answers”
If a ask for assistance goes out and a proffer doesn’t immediately answer, it’s forwarded on to someone else so a blind chairman doesn’t have to wait.
Nearly 40-thousand blind people are regulating a app and over a half million good encourage and well-sighted volunteers.
Anyone can pointer adult to assistance by downloading a app. Don’t be astounded if we don’t get a call really often.
There are some-more than 500 thousand some-more volunteers than visually marred users regulating a app.
Until recently a Be My Eyes app was iPhone only, though a association launched an Android chronicle only a few days ago, to assistance even some-more people do things many of us take for granted.
Now, it’s accessible to anyone with a smartphone.
