Aira app helps to guide the blind & visually impaired
Grocery shopping or throwing garbage are tasks that many visually impaired find difficult to do independently.
Now an app called Aira is helping to make that easy by connecting users to visual interpreting services.
This is how Aira works. The user opens the app or presses a button on their glasses, which calls one of 15 trained agents. With the use of a special dashboard, an agent can see the users' surroundings either through smart glasses or a phone camera.
The agent can then verbally walk the user through what's around them and answer questions.
Aira can also order from Amazon and hail Ubers.
