Be My Eyes - Support those who are Blind/Visually Impaired


#1

Be My Eyes asks sighted volunteers to help visually impaired people

Ran into this last night while I was perusing the internet. It’s an app that connects someone who is blind/visually impaired to someone who is sighted for help with various tasks (locating colors, reading labels, etc). The app is anonymous and notifies supporters when a request is made.

I am curious, so I signed up. They say it takes a while before you begin to receive notifications. So, we shall see what happens. Again, I am new to this but thought I would put it on if others have experience with it or would be interested in checking it out.

This would maybe be cool as a community service option for students. Let me know what you think of it!
