Best of NB Online (archive)


iDentifi is an app that empowers visually impaired individuals to gain more independence in daily tasks like grocery shopping, self-navigating in indoor environments, and reading. It uses artificial intelligence to enable a visually impaired user to click a photo of virtually any object or piece of text, and then speaks aloud a description of the object in an image or dictate any text in the image to the user. Furthermore, all of the app's functionality works in more than 25 languages. Finally, the app features an interface designed with visually impaired users in mind, while also giving users the option to choose from three different modes of object/text recognition as well as how fast they want the app to speak.

User comments

This App does not just recognize pictures from your camera roll or new pictures, it is very detailed. It will for example tell you “Man holding a 20£ note!”

It has a very simple user interface and it’s free. It will be a great help identifying your 2016 Xmas gifts!
