There are a number of blind people who walk around us every day but do we really help them or just pass by?
A life for a blind person a no easy task. I, Divyendra Patil & Rahul Yadav created this hackathon project to help the blind since someone close to Rahul is visually impaired & a close friend of mine is completely visually disabled.
We will never understand the struggle blind people go through but know how they are looked down, mocked in some places, even malls, and supermarkets.
We have created this project to help them while buying foods or other products or even knowing what kind of product is in front of them. Any person can use this handy tool and help us make it better. As a prototype, there are just 40 foods which the app detects and we will keep adding more as we get time. We have launched an Android version and we are in the process of currently porting to IOS since there has been some time either of us worked on the IOS platform. We have currently implemented 4 languages, English, Spanish, French & Mandarin (WIP).
We also thank the students around us at NYU who helped us with different languages and their grammar. We know it is not perfect but we are cyber security and not linguistics students so kindly understand our side of the story too before judging and defaming us for bad grammar in the app.
Kindly understand that we are a two man team and working on projects like these take time and patience. Kindly support us by sending criticism or any kind of advice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
