This app is so awesome! As someone who is completely blind this is such an easy app to use. Works very fast, pretty accurate and offers a variety of tasks for the blind / vision impaired. I'm still learning the ropes but so far very useful. One suggestion would be to add currency ID to let you know its denomination and orientation of the bill (facing up / down back / front of bill)

The app is okay however if you ever try to cancel the service you may have issues. I keep being charged for both a yearly and monthly subscription in spite of canceling them both and requesting a phone call where I explained the issue and was told that I would be refunded and no further charges would be attempted. Another charge was attempted so I'm attempting to reach back out to get this resolved.

The color detection is completely inaccurate, the scene detection could scare someone with often saying that there is a person/child there when there isn't, only the text recognition might be helpful for a visually impaired person. Another over priced technology for visually impaired people that claims a lot, but doesn't have much functionality. There are other Free apos that do these things better.They also have a pair of glasses that cost over 2k more than the tech they run off of.

What's new

Envision 3.0 is out and if you update to this version you’ll be able to use Envision entirely free of cost. We’d like to thank all our subscribers over the years for their support of the app.
Some major changes with this update:
* We’ve improved the speed of Scan Text greatly with this version. It’s still incredibly accurate with reading text.
* We’ve also improved offline instant text with this update. Now it can read text in any orientation (even if the image is upside down).
