Aipoly app opens up the world for people with vision disabilities

Asia-Pacific, Assistive Technology, March 28 2017

An Australian engineer has co-created created an app for people who are blind or have low vision that reads out what is in front of it.

Aipoly_logoThe Aipoly app uses artificial intelligence to recognize its surroundings, and then says those objects out loud as a way to aid users with vision disabilities.

This uses your phone’s camera to identify objects and dictate what they are. It can recognise up to three objects per second, and doesn’t require internet connection to run.

Aipoly Vision can recognize 1,000 essential items for free, and more through a subscription. The app can read them out in seven different languages and it also identifies colours.

The app is currently available to download for free.
