“We at the RNIB heard from someone who’s been using ‘VizWiz’ for a while: “I was very excited when I first heard about this app, particularly the bit about getting answers to questions from web workers, and from people on my Twitter account. This meant that I could ask a wide variety of questions, not just the usual “What's this?” I’ve used the app quite a few times now. At times, I did get a ropey Internet connection, which meant that I couldn’t get any answers. However, once I got the connection, then I only had to wait about a minute for the answers to my questions. I think, to be honest, this app would work better with an iPhone 4, as it has a better camera and a flash—which means that you get better quality pictures. So, say for asking questions about colours, the picture would be a more accurate representation of the colour. However, I have used the app successfully for many things, including finding out how many slices of cold meat I had in a packet—which you probably couldn’t find out if you used something such as ‘oMoby’. So, I’d definitely recommend this app to anyone wanting to find information”. Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), UK
