Be My Eyes – An App for Lending Help to the Blind

BeMyEyes

Be My Eyes is a new innovative way to provide assistance to blind people via an app. From the website: “Be My Eyes is an app that connects blind people with volunteer helpers from around the world via live video chat.

A blind person requests assistance in the Be My Eyes app. The challenge that he/she needs help with can be anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk to navigating new surroundings.

The volunteer helper receives a notification for help and a live video connection is established. From the live video the volunteer can help the blind person by answering the question they need answered.”
