Be My Eyes – Helping blind see
By Be My Eyes
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Be the eyes for a blind person in need of help remotely through a live video connection if you are sighted or be assisted by the network of sighted users if you are blind.
Be My Eyes is all about contributing to and benefiting from small acts of kindness, so hop on board and get involved!
Blind users can request help from a sighted person and the sighted users will then be called for help. As soon as the first sighted user accepts the request for help a live audio-video connection will be set up between the two and the sighted user can tell the blind person what she sees when the blind user points his phone at something using the rear-facing camera.
As a sighted user you don't need to worry about missing a call and 'leave a blind person hanging' - you are a part of the bigger Be My Eyes helper-network and we will find the next available sighted person in the network. The challenges that the blind person needs help with can be anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk to getting help crossing the street.
Note: We encourage blind users to be patient when requesting help because we rely on real people to help you.
- Live audio-video connection between blind and sighted users
- Add the languages you know under settings
- An easy way you can make a difference for blind people
What's New in Version 1.5.1
Fix ui bugs.
I can't login, I try to reset password by app says I have no internet connection. I even don't know I had set a password, I think I created account earlier using Facebook, maybe.
I helped someone!
It's a great feeling to be able to help someone so much and with such ease. Frankly, I hope to receive many more requests for assistance.
Highly recommended and simple interface
I just tried Be My Eyes and the connection was fine. Good audio, video worked, the call wasn't dropped. Didn't take very long to find a helper. Would do this again when I'm in need of something more detailed than identifying an object, which TapTapSee is great for. They serve different purposes and I'm happy to have both available to me.
P.S. Was on my DSL connection at home, so the speed/latency was reliable and low, respectively. I don't have a fast connection at all, but judging by what my helper said, the video was good enough to describe things to me.
