Details of the app

The Face Recognition App, Hello is a great example how we can use our knowledge and partner with tech companies to help visually impaired & blind people in their daily life :

  • Uses Cognitive services and Microsoft latest image analysis technology to identify people, items and scene.
  • Microsoft Cognitive Services work across devices and platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows.
  • The mobile app uses the Smartphones camera to take pictures of objects or people and then uses the back-end cognitive services to provide a description. The desktop app can provide a description of the content of pictures from any available document library, and if the picture contains a known contact, the app will identify them by name.
  • ViaOpta Hello is available in twelve languages including English, German, French, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Greek, Portuguese, Dutch, Italian and Hungarian.
