LookTel Recognizer allows those persons having visual impairments or blindness to identify cans, packages, ID or credit cards, DVDs, and similar items. Customers can store images of objects in a library or database, and then point the iPhone's camera at an object and the phone will recognize and describe the item instantly. A barcode scanner is included to provide additional labeling help.
LookTel Recognizer is powered by an evolution of NantWork's Internet of Thought™ data linking services in LookTel's "Money Reader", an app that has helped thousands of customers with visual impairments or blindness to instantly identify and count more than 20 paper currencies. Like MoneyReader, Recognizer uses state-of-the-art recognition technology.
Recognition happens instantly, in real-time, without having to hold the camera still to capture a photo, then wait for a result. Recognizer can be used at any location, anytime, as the app needs no internet connection.
Recognizer provides customers backup support through export of the Library items via EMail, enabling the restoration of a database from lost or replaced devices. Sharing items with other members of the community is made easy via this email export.
Please note that people with severe visual impairments or blindness may require sighted assistance to initially create the image library. The image library must be setup before LookTel Recognizer can be used to identify objects.
How to use Recognizer:
Once the app is downloaded on your iOS device, you must create an image library before you can start recognizing items. Creating the library is easy, and can be fun, especially if you have a friend or family member who is a shutterbug. While it may seem to take a lot of time, it takes far less than most people imagine to create an excellent library of images. Once the library exists, less and less time is required of a sighted person, as you will find Recognizer can already identify most items that are used daily reliably and accurately every time.
NantWorks™ brings you a new way of experiencing the world though its new Internet of Thought™ data linking services.

Ratings and Reviews
Update for iOS 11
Please make an update so this app is compatible with iOS 11. So far, this is the best barcode reader for the blind, and it needs to be updated to be compatible with iOS 11.
Updated to iOS 11
This is the best ever:
But we hope you update this app to iOS 11,
Because we cannot able to use the app right now.
Many people say that this app is no good, however they are wrong. This app does exactly as advertised however you will need sighted assistance to get started at first people are knocking this app because of this one fact which is stupid, I had decided help when first using this app so, I really don't see what the big deal is. I know this app is very good and it trumps all other apps and barcode scanning, I love this app. The app does have its downfalls sometimes but, I overlook these overall, this is a good app and a must-have for every blind person, it will only get better
