Envision: Enabling vision for visually impaired
It is known that 90% of all information processed by human brain is visual. Therefore, losing access to this significant amount of information can be extremely limiting and isolating. Envision was founded by a team of passionate designers and engineers who were looking to apply cutting edge technologies to solve meaningful problems. The ideas and solutions emerged from their empathy towards users and their problems.
Envision is a mobile app which employs artificial intelligence to make visual information accessible to visually impaired. Text Recognition tools can read any kind of text, from any surface, in over 60 languages. Envision's General Recognition offers a suite of visual recognition tools that make the world more accessible to the users through describing scenes, colours, faces and objects. Envision is designed to be the fastest, most accurate, and easiest to use reading solution, allowing visually impaired users to shop, use public transportation, order in restaurants, find their belongings and perform many more actions on their own. The context-based approach always ensures that users get the right information that they are anticipating from an image.
