Braigo app helps blind understand text on images
For the nearly 300 million people around the world who are visually impaired, browsing the Internet can be a frustrating experience.
Braigo Labs has launched a beta of its app to help the blind and visually impaired people make sense of text on images.
Braigo Platform is a free web application aimed at anyone who needs accessibility solutions for the visually impaired. The platform supports more than 50 languages, and can be used to extract text from images from a variety of sources, whether from the web or from a phone.
Screen readers are usually limited to text displayed as text and are not useful for reading text overlaid on images.
