School student in the United States designs app for visually impaired people called MyVision
A student at a school in the United States is creating news for an app called MyVision that she has developed for people who are blind or have low vision.
Divya Amirtharaj, who developed the award-winning app, started working on it to help parents of visually impaired children read Braille. Instead, she came up with an app that can read text aloud, in seven languages.
The app works like a simple scanner. Users have to take their phone and hold it up to a book or a magazine, and it will read the text out loud.
Amirtharaj has won the first prize for the app at a national-level competition for MyVision. She was also interviewed on the well-known show, Good Morning America.
The app, MyVision, is available to download from the Android app store. Amritharaj hopes to make it available soon in iTunes as well.
