Visually-impaired people can use the app to:
. Connect with a sighted volunteer
. Explain what they need the volunteer to look for or see
. Point the rear-facing camera on the phone towards what the sighted volunteer needs to look at.
Typical day to day uses include:
. Finding things around the home
. Finding the right button to press on a washing machine
. Help adjusting home technology, like heating thermostats
The app currently supports around more than 32,000 visually-impaired people through a global network of around 450,000 sighted volunteers.
