What is it about?
The Be My Eyes – Helping Blind See app lets you assist others through a live video connection. The blind user will point their rear-facing camera at the item they need help with and the sighted person will tell them what they see. The app has a helper-network so that no one is left without assistance.
Why we love it
Be My Eyes is an easy way to help those who cannot see. With a live video connection, you can volunteer your time to help the blind and visually-impaired.
Be My Eyes supports Siri commands
App Store Description
Access visual assistance on demand, if you are blind or visually impaired, or lend your eyes to the blind or visually impaired if you are sighted.
Be My Eyes is all about connecting blind or visually impaired with sighted volunteers, to help the blind or visually impaired lead more independent lives. Benefiting and contributing to the community is easy.
Blind or visually impaired users can request help from a sighted volunteer, who will receive a notification. As soon as the first sighted user accepts the request, a live audio-video connection will be established between the two parts. The sighted helper can now assist the blind or visually impaired, through the video connection from the blind or visually impaired user’s rear-facing camera.
As a sighted user, you are part of the big Be My Eyes volunteer-network, so don’t worry about leaving a blind person hanging, if you are not able to answer a request. We will simply forward the request and find the next available volunteer.
The blind or visually impaired user can need help with anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk, to making sure that their clothes match.
