VocalEyes uses artificial intelligence to make the world more accessible for the blind and visually impaired.

Created at MIT, VocalEyes uses proprietary computer vision algorithms to:
• Identify Objects
• Read Text
• Describe Environments
• Label Logos and Brands
• Detect Faces
• Classify Emotions
• Recognize Ages
• Distinguish Currency Denominations

VocalEyes achieves all this using an intuitive and buttonless interface. Just tap the screen once and VocalEyes will return an audio response describing the scene.

Best of all, VocalEyes is and will remain entirely free.

Our mission is to offer the experience of sight through sound.

Customer Reviews

The button now has a label but the app crashes.

That blind guy brown

When i take a picture, the app crashes and takes me back to the home screen.

Not brilliant


After updating this app, I tried it out, whereupon it just froze when I took a photo and cannot get rid of it, and return to normal

Good app but considering its for the blind it is not accessible

I Love Disney

I decided to try this app when it came up on a related search.
It works quite well at identifying things and reading text, however it is a little slow.
The biggest problem is even though it's designed for the visually impaired the voice-over does not work and it shows buttons that are not really there and the main shutter just says button.
This needs updating desperately so that a blind person using it knows how to use the app.
I would normally give this four stars however with the lack of voice-over support I will only give it to

Developer Response

Hello! Sorry about your experience with the app! We actually discovered that VoiceOver reads over the UI, so even things in our background were read. We have fixed this in the new version to make it more compatible with VoiceOver! Thank you!
