New FREE App for Visually Imparied People

Thank you for sharing this article Linda van der Merwe (BizViz)

A Toronto teen is hoping to change the lives of visually impaired people around the world with a new app that can identify virtually any object with the quick tap of an iPhone or iPad.

Jason Fayre, the head of accessibility and assistive technology at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, tested out the app and, although there are similar apps on the market, gave it a rave review.

It is called iDentifi and it’s FREE, something Tukrel doesn’t plan on changing.

“I want people who are visually impaired to use it without thinking of the financial consequences of doing so,” he said. “We have such great technology and I think it’s important that everyone has access to it.”
