Recently updated with the ability to translate more languages, Be My Eyes is a crowd-sourced app that partners a person with vision to a person who is blind or visually impaired using video chat. Blind users can request help from a sighted person and the sighted users will then be called for help. As soon as the first sighted user accepts the request for help a live audio-video connection will be set up between the two and the sighted user can tell the blind person what she sees when the blind user points his phone at something using the rear-facing camera. For example, the person who is blind or visually impaired may ask “What color is this shirt?” and the volunteer answers “blue”. Be My Eyes is all about contributing to and benefiting from small acts of kindness.
