Designed for the blind and low vision community, this ongoing research project harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to open up the visual world and describe nearby people, text and objects.
Because this is still a research project, there are some abilities that we consider “experimental.” One of those is the Scene channel, which uses AI to describe the photo you capture so that you have a better idea of your surrounding environment.
