a mobile app for the visually impaired to crowdsource vision and care for them. Using inbuilt iOS and Android’s accessibility features, a visually impaired person can easily take a picture of anything with just a tap. The image is then shared with micro-volunteers in real-time as a query. The volunteers can describe the image to the visually impaired, from wherever they are, making volunteering effortless, easy and instant — a movement also known as micro-volunteering. The replies are then converted from text to speech for the visually impaired. With this app, now anyone, anywhere, can connect to a visually impaired person, and help even if they only have seconds to spare.
In cooperation with PKP (Polish State Railways) we have programmed a special timetable and installed it on the way to McDonald’s. It tells you departure time, destination, platform and waiting time measured not in minutes or hours but… in hamburgers, cokes and fries you manage to eat before your train leaves.
