Microsoft’s new app for the blind 👀
Microsoft’s new app makes the visual world accessible to the blind. The app is a talking camera that uses AI to identify people and things around you, described in audio. It can:

- Recognize peoples’ facial expressions
- Read nutritional facts
- Identify a $20 bill
- Voice-dictate your Twitter timeline

Watch the video. It’s impressive. 👏

The app, creatively named, Seeing AI, is reminiscent of one of the most popular hunts from 2015: Be My Eyes, an app to “lend” your eyes to the blind. For those fortunate to have unimpaired sight, visit this site for your daily dose of empathy.
