App that could give sight to the blind
August 6, 2016
A mobile app that uses a smartphone camera to scan for objects, people, and words and then uses audio to pass this information to vision-impaired users called Avi is currently in the testing phases.
Avi is the brainchild of a Juan Pablo Ortiz, a 19-year-old from Guatemala who has been coding since he was 13.
Ortiz said that his app aims to help the blind improve their everyday lives. The app is currently in the final stages in the laboratory and will be released in October this year as a free download for iOS, Android, and Windows 10.
Ortiz says that some of the inspiration for the app came from his friend who is vision-impaired.
