Be My Eyes app helps the visually impaired do simple tasks
A new app called Be My Eyes connects the blind and visually impaired with sighted helpers from around the world via live video or audio chat.
The visually impaired often need help with simple tasks. The app connects them to people with sight who understand the task through the remote video call and help.
While the app is available, it needs a community of volunteers. The volunteers can be from around the world. A man from Denmark called Hans Jørgen Wiberg, who is visually impaired, developed the idea himself.
