Be My Eyes
Last week we talked about assistive technology that helps people with visual impairments to navigate the world around them. This week I want to share an app that has been around for a while, called Be My Eyes. Recently Disability Viewpoints shared this story. The app works by using a network of volunteers and workers who are alerted via the app when someone needs another set of eyes to help with a problem or describe something to them. Check out this video on You-tube. The best thing about this app is that anyone can help. The world is a better place when we help each other.
