Microsoft Comes Up With Its App That Lets Users Explore Photos By Touch

Leveraging on-device facial-recognition technology, the app can even describe the physical appearance of people and predict their mood.

Microsoft has updated its computer vision app for the visually challenged people with an option to explore photos by touching them.

The new feature in the “Seeing AI” iOS app enables users to tap their finger to an image on a touch-screen to hear a description of objects within an image and the spatial relationship between them.

“Users can explore photos of their surroundings taken on the ‘Scene’ channel, family photos stored in their photo browser, and even images shared on social media by summoning the options menu while in other apps,” Saqib Shaikh, Software Engineering Manager and Project Lead for ‘Seeing AI’, said in a blog-post late Tuesday.

Seeing AI is already helping users read printed text in books, restaurant menus, street signs and handwritten notes, as well as identify banknotes and products via their barcode.
