About this app

Supersense is the smartest assistive app that helps blind and visually impaired users to read, find objects, and explore places independently. It provides a set of digital eyes to make the physical world more accessible for the blind and low vision community.

Supersense uses the power of AI to not only describe things but actually solve problems for blind and visually impaired users. Users can independently:
- Read texts, documents and handwriting quickly using our unique auto camera guidance system
- Locate specific objects such as a chair, door, trashcan, or person around by scanning the environment with the camera
- Explore new and unfamiliar environments and hear about the objects that are around
- Read texts on photos and PDFs from other apps. Simply share the files to Supersense and it will read it for you in seconds.

Every single feature works without an internet connection so that they can be used in any situation.

The app has full TalkBack accessibility support and is available in multiple languages.

Supersense is developed by Mediate, an MIT-spinoff AI start-up based in Boston. Mediate develops innovative computer vision systems with the support of the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Veterans Affairs. This app is just the first step in our mission to develop groundbreaking AI solutions for people with visual disabilities. We have developed the app with principles of human-centered design and with the assistance of blind and visually impaired users. We also partnered with many organizations that help the blind and low vision community.

If you would like any assistance or help, please email us at We always love to hear ideas and feedback from the blind and visually impaired community.

I was writing a more thorough and detailed review, but apparently the Play store is now limiting reviews to 500 characters, so I'll be brief. Object recognition needs a lot of work. Because my apartment door is painted the same color as my walls, it doesn't see it. It thought a group of prescription bottles were "beer," and every dark screen it calls a computer monitor, including my microwave door. But the.text reader seems to work on really tiny print, which is very useful for my needs.

The free version is really cool. You really just have to learn how to place the camera in the right places. I use this app for work. My hand does get tired after a while though. I use it to read text on my screen that I cannot use my screen reader for. For me, if it could just start reading automatically when I open the app that would be great. Also, if the app could tell you when you're too far or too close to what you're trying to read that would be very helpful.

Supersense is a really nice app that helps locate objects in my environment. It has helped me find my trashcan as well as a door in a basement in pitch-black conditions. I think the AI does a good job to find and identify objects as I was able to use the application in an environment where I didn't have cell or internet service. I look forward to the progress and improvement of this application.
