TapTapSee - powered by CloudSight.ai image recognition API


TapTapSee is designed to help the blind and visually impaired identify objects they encounter in their daily lives.

Simply double tap the screen to take a photo of anything, at any angle, and hear the app speak the identification back to you (Note: Spoken identification requires VoiceOver to be turned on).

TapTapSee helps the blind and visually impaired become more independent in their day-to-day activities.

TapTapSee has been a huge hit with users taking thousands of pictures per-day. It has garnered multiple podcasts, reviews, as well as positive feedback within the community.

Great app Tap Tap See for the blind


I think this is a pretty good app for a blind user to have to use for a lot of identification. I've used this app when it first came out or at least since I first heard about it back in 2012 on my iPhone 4s, I was much impressed at to what I heard and now I feel the app has much improved. In fact, the other day, I laid some hand towels out on my bathroom vanity and had the lights on, I needed to know the colors to sort them, since I already knew the colors of towels I had, but not knowing which one was which, I took several pictures with tap tap see and each item was correctly described of it's color, I managed to even get a pic of myself of my shirt I was wearing at the time, tap tap see woman wearing a white shirt,that was right too. I've used it in recognizing some items in my pantry as well. It's a good useful app for me, I am very glad it's still available, I had purchased the 100 picture pack, of course I am very glad to have the pictures free, but it would be worth it to me to pay again if that was necessary.

Good but could be better

Totally blind one

It is really good but could be better if only you could see exactly if it was a female or male or a dog on the picture that would be awesome or even say the background in a trailer load bad in front of a window that kind of thing that kind of picture would be awesome and help people more that are totally blind that would like to keep memories alive so they can explain it to their kids or their grandkids are there nieces and nephews or friends because when a friend or family member or someone says well where was this taken people can't answer that because they can't see what the background is they can't tell what year it is so you and the time and day would be great if you could just say that you know like it was taken on October 3, 2016 at 5:00 PM instead of just saying one small face one large face and bottom corners for upped up in the middle you know in any stability in the middle or it's a female botched it and it's a female or and it's Mel or it's a dog or the cat kind of thing it now otherwise it's a great app I like it like I said you could do be improved but for start it's pretty good



My girlfriend told me about this app a couple days ago when I was getting ready to post some pictures of us on my Facebook page, but wasn't sure how many of the recent ones had already been shared. I'm generally very good at this, as I remember The order in which my pictures are displayed very well. She not only told me about the app, but also taught me how to use it after I downloaded it to my phone. Wow! I don't know of a better app out there for this kind of thing. Maybe Facebook should incorporate some of this apps technology/software into how it describes pictures.

The only thing that would make this app even better than it is would be if it described videos. Hopefully, the developers will get on that for a future update!
