App Connects Sighted Volunteers With Low-Vision People Needing A Quick Look

Now this is lovely crowdsourcing. A new app lets you volunteer to be eyes for a person with limited or no sight. “Be My Eyes is a pretty simple concept: The person who’s blind connects to people with sight, points the smartphone camera at things and gets help seeing what they are. The app rings — a monotonous, droning ring — until both sides are connected.”
