The Lookout App Helps Blind People See By Describing The World

There are over 253 million blind or visually impaired people in the world.

Google’s engineers have created a remarkable app that can help the blind or those with low vision see the items around them in more detail.

Called ‘Lookout’ the app is free to download and turns your smartphone into a pair of virtual eyes.

The user hangs the phone around their neck with the camera facing outward then whenever they want to know what’s in front of them they can simply double-tap the phone and it will instantly recognise any objects and describe them.
