Summary

Recognises currency, and speaks the denomination, enabling people with a visual impairment or blindness to identify and count banknotes. A user points the phone’s camera at a banknote, and (without having to hold the phone still, or take a photo), the app’s object-recognition technology recognises the currency instantly. At least five currencies can be recognised: Australian Dollar; British Pound; Canadian Dollar; Euro; and US Dollar. Should not be used to try to detect counterfeit currency. Needs adequate lighting (the app notifies the user if the lighting level is too poor).

Reviewer: Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB), UK
Review: “Scans money of a wide range of different currencies, and it will tell you the value of each note. [Item 48 on RNIB list.]”

Reviewer: Elena Esauriente, empowered consumer [quoted by RAI], Italy
Review: “ ‘LookTel Money Reader’ is absolutely ideal for recognising the money. A healthy voice to it when recognising notes, and a vibrating touch. But not an app to use when you’re in the checkout, and you have to pay.”
