Have you heard of Be My Eyes? It’s a smartphone application that pairs blind people and those who have low vision with a sighted volunteer. Using a phone’s rear-facing camera, volunteers guide the visually impaired; more than 900,000 people are using the app regularly, in 150 countries. Microsoft’s Disability Answer Desk, a free consumer service for customers with disabilities, now offers technical support for Be My Eyes users.
“Every day, volunteers around the world are helping people that are blind or have low vision solve challenges both big and small,” said Hans Jørgen Wiberg, creator of Be My Eyes. “We are honored to have Microsoft’s support to help individuals lead more independent lives.”
