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!
More limited than i first thought
In reading text, the app can't separate one column of text from another or the left hand page from the right hand page when both pages of an open book are seen by the camera. Also, i found the app won't work at all without an internet connection; a serious limitation and threat to privacy too since images are processed on an external server.
Cool app and a feature request
I've only use the app a couple of times and it seem to do very well describing what I was taking a picture of. It would be nice for a way to have the app repeat what was last spoken.
I would give it 5 stars if
If you could make it so I don't have to have speech on in my settings
