VocalEyes uses artificial intelligence to make the world more accessible for the blind and visually impaired.
Created at MIT, VocalEyes uses proprietary computer vision algorithms to:
• Identify Objects
• Read Text
• Describe Environments
• Label Logos and Brands
• Detect Faces
• Classify Emotions
• Recognize Ages
• Distinguish Currency Denominations
VocalEyes achieves all this using an intuitive and buttonless interface. Just tap the screen once and VocalEyes will return an audio response describing the scene.
Best of all, VocalEyes is and will remain entirely free.
Our mission is to offer the experience of sight through sound.
• 35+ New languages supported
• Improved text recognition
• Voiceover button labels

Okay, but needs work
This app has a problem with frequent crashes. If there’s something that it simply cannot process, it crashes, rather than just giving a simple error. Also, taking a picture doesn’t help when it doesn’t tell you whether what you’re trying to read is in focus. The text reading is more likely to help those who can see, but have a little bit more trouble than it is to help those who are completely blind, because you can’t lineup the shot beforehand. Other apps give you the option to line up and tell you where you need to move your phone before actually taking the picture. This one does not do that. Unlike other apps, it would be nice to be able to keep a photo that you’ve taken, especially if it turns out to be a really good one. This one also doesn’t do that. Microsoft might be able to help you with that. Perhaps working together might help both apps become something even better.
I love this app!
Fortunately, I’m not visually impaired. But VocalEyes is incredibly useful and valuable to me. I use it almost everyday whenever I see something I don’t know the name of. Just snap a pic, and you immediately what it is!
It’s like google, but for stuff and things around you!
Absolutely love the app!
Very cool, but cant access settings?
This blew me away at the accuracy of the first 20 clicks. However, there doesn’t appear to be a way to access any menus, it can ONLY click and report.
Is this an issue just with my version? Running on iPhone X iOS 11.3
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
