TapTapSee - powered by CloudSight.ai Image Recognition API


TapTapSee is designed to help the blind and visually impaired identify objects they encounter in their everyday lives.

Simply tap anywhere on the screen to take a picture. TapTapSee can photograph any two or three-dimensional object at any angle and speak the identification back to the user (Note: Spoken identification requires VoiceOver to be turned on).

TapTapSee helps blind and visually impaired users become more independent in their day-to-day activities.

Has helped me many times

It usually takes a while, and many tries, to get a good picture, but it has come through for me on countless occasions.
I would give it five stars if they would make it repeat more than just the last picture taken, because sometimes you take a picture, and while you’re waiting you take another one, and the second one comes in far faster than the first so that you missed what the first one was, but the repeat only does the second. That, or they could just list the history of the last five pictures taken or whatever on the screen in text form.

Great app Tap Tap See for the blind

I think this is a pretty good app for a blind user to have to use for a lot of identification. I've used this app when it first came out or at least since I first heard about it back in 2012 on my iPhone 4s, I was much impressed at to what I heard and now I feel the app has much improved. In fact, the other day, I laid some hand towels out on my bathroom vanity and had the lights on, I needed to know the colors to sort them, since I already knew the colors of towels I had, but not knowing which one was which, I took several pictures with tap tap see and each item was correctly described of it's color, I managed to even get a pic of myself of my shirt I was wearing at the time, tap tap see woman wearing a white shirt,that was right too. I've used it in recognizing some items in my pantry as well. It's a good useful app for me, I am very glad it's still available, I had purchased the 100 picture pack, of course I am very glad to have the pictures free, but it would be worth it to me to pay again if that was necessary.

So long Tap Tap See

I used to love this app, but it seems like ever since the app became free to use the quality has dramatically dropped. When I first got this app, I would hold it up in front of the LCD display screens on the thermostats in our home to set the temperature. Our thermostats were pushbutton to adjust the temperature, and had switches to change the mode or turn the fan on and off. If I knew what’s the setting was on, I would know how many times to press the button to set it to the desired temperature. For instance, Tap Tap See would tell me that the thermostat was set at 60°, and that the house temperature was 65. I was then able to realize that if I wanted to set the heat at 68 that I would simply need to push the up button eight times. Recently though, I have resorted to calling AIRA when I need help adjusting the thermostat as this app will say something along the lines of thermostat is set at 20/5. Also, I loved the new video feature that was being introduced, with this app, but this feature was very short-lived. I have anxiously been waiting for it to return for nearly a year now, and nothing has come out. Unless a miracle occurs, I suspect this app is finished with updates and will soon be retired just as the Look Tell money reading app was.
