Being blind must be an extraordinarily difficult, especially in an increasingly digital world.
But, a new app seeks to make the lives of the blind a little easier. It’s called Be My Eyes.
According to the app’s website, Be My Eyes “connects blind people with volunteer helpers from around the world via live video chat.”
Basically, it allows those with sight to see through a blind person’s camera phone in order to help them “see” things.
The app depends on small acts of kindness by its users.
Not only does it help those in need, but it fosters a sense of community and maybe even friendship among its users.
It’s a pretty great idea and it is currently available in the iTunes App Store.
