Seeing Assistant Light gives the visually impaired people ability to detect the source of light. During its use, this application generates characteristic continuous sound. The sound pitch alters according to light intensity. The brighter the light, the higher the sound pitch emitted. The user localizes the source of light by turning the camera lens in the direction of the highest sound. This is a separate element of Seeing Assistant Home functionality, incorporated in the independent program.

This application not only helps to enlarge the image but also helps to change its brightness, contrast and colors (black and white and color inversion). This application is able to present the image from the back or front camera of the device. It uses LED light illumination.
