Most people visit the app stores to find game, messaging and social media apps that will keep them entertained and help pass the time. Others, however, visit the app store to download apps that can significantly improve their day-to-day lives.
Take the TapTapSee app as an example. The mobile camera application is designed specifically for the blind and visually impaired. Through the app, users can double tap on the device’s screen to photograph any two or three dimensional object at any angle. The app then analyzes the object and identifies it audibly to the user within seconds, even noting details such as the object’s color.
The app aims to help the blind and visually impaired become more independent in their daily lives. TapTapSee is available for both iOS and Android devices.
