Mumbai student creates app for visually impaired
August 8, 2016
Mumbai student Pavan Kumar Chitta, has created a app for the visually impaired.
The app helps them to move around without taking the help of others.
Pavan was inspired to create the app after he visited the 'Dialogue in the Dark' restaurant in Bengaluru, which is staffed by visually impaired people. Pavan was surprised when he saw their confidence and great service.
Pavan's app, Bee My Guide, uses the programming Interface from companies like IBM. The app is currently on iOS phones and clicks pictures of the surroundings and then describes it.
The app has six features - My Vision, Check my money, What's around me, My location, My weather and Find my stuff - guide the user.
Pavan created these features by taking feedback from the staff of the 'Dialogue in the Dark' restaurant.
