Seeing AI App

A free app, from Microsoft, that narrates the world around you. Designed for the low vision community, this research project harnesses the power of AI to describe people, text and objects
Optimised for use with VoiceOver, the app enables you to recognise: • Short Text – Speaks text as soon as it appears in front of the camera. • Documents – Provides audio guidance to capture a printed page, and recognises the text, along with its original formatting. • Products – Scans barcodes, using audio beeps to guide you; hear the name, and package information when available. • People – Saves people’s faces so you can recognise them, and get an estimate of their age, gender, and emotions. • Scenes (early preview) – Hear an overall description of the scene captured. • Images in other apps – Just tap “Share” and “Recognise with Seeing AI” to describe images from Mail, Photos, Twitter, and more.
Seeing AI is built to help you achieve more by leveraging the power of the cloud and artificial intelligence. As the research progresses, more channels may be added.
