iDentifi- Object Recognition for Visually Impaired
By Anmol Tukrel
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
iDentifi is an app that empowers visually impaired individuals to gain more independence in daily tasks like grocery shopping, self-navigating in indoor environments, and reading. It uses artificial intelligence to enable a visually impaired user to click a photo of virtually any object or piece of text, and then speaks aloud a description of the object in an image or dictate any text in the image to the user. Furthermore, all of the app's functionality works in more than 25 languages. Finally, the app features an interface designed with visually impaired users in mind, while also giving users the option to choose from three different modes of object/text recognition as well as how fast they want the app to speak.

What's New in Version 1.2.1
Squashed a bug.
Thanks for using iDentifi!
A very good app.
This app is very good, however; it would be better if we can repeat what was said. It would also be great if voiceover could read back what the voice says. The reason for this; is so that those who are deaf blind can use the app too.
Could potentially be useful.
There are a growing number of this type of app around now. This stage in its development it is fairly slow to respond, lacks the ability to repeat the description which makes it difficult if there is a lot of distracting noise around, doesn't appear to read text at this stage.however, he voice is very clear.
