Envision is the fastest, most reliable and up-to-date app that verbally translates the visual world into spoken words, helping blind and visually impaired people to lead more independent lives.

Using the iPhone camera, smart artificial intelligence and OCR, Envision is designed and tested with input and support from the visually impaired community. The app is simple, it Gets Things Done and brings the best assistive experience to blind and low vision users.

With full VoiceOver support, Envision allows you to:

• Instantly read texts in over 60 different languages. Fully available offline for Latin-based languages like English.

• Easily scan your paper documents (single or multiple pages) with the help of audio-guided edge detection. All content is spoken back to you and is ready for export and edit.

• Quickly read handwritten postcards, letters, lists and other paperwork written in neat handwriting.

• Effortlessly describe visual scenes around you - simply take a picture of it.

• Detect colours on your clothes, walls, books, you name it.

• Swiftly scan barcodes to get more information about the products you use and consume.

• Find people around you; The names of your family and friends are spoken out whenever they are in the frame.

• Find objects around you; selecting common objects from the in-app list.

• Share images or documents from your phone or other apps like Twitter or WhatsApp by selecting Envision from the share sheet, to get a description of the image and recognition of all the text within it.
