These devices have opened the world, removed barriers, and provided independence to people with vision loss. There are a multitude of apps now available on these devices which are a tremendous help.
Assistive technology like screen readers and other apps assist with writing documents, reading books, browsing the internet, emailing, working efficiently, and excelling with school. The cameras on these devices are also used as digital magnifiers, allowing those with low vision to read books and see pictures and other objects without having to strain their remaining vision. Apps such as Be My Eyes and Seeing AI offer access to the visual world by identifying colors, providing environmental information, navigating safely and independently indoors and out, and even telling if a light is on in a room.
