In recent times, A famous slogan I have adapted when I seek Be my eyes support is
“Could you be my eyes?”
My of my readers won’t understand this, this is simply because, through this question I have been able to find resolutions and get great support. Never the less, with the latest technological growth There are countless applications that have come up. As a global citizen, navigating and performing some tasks have been quite challenging, but there’s an application that can assists a person who is blind like me or a person with seeing difficulties with what some people don’t have to think twice about.
Not only is the Be My Eyes app making a difference in the daily lives of those who are blind and visually impaired like me but it gives persons who are yet to have sight difficulties a chance to volunteer in a way they can truly make an impact.
Here’s how it works: A person who is blind or visually impaired can connect on the app via video and audio with a sighted person, who can help them with tasks as simple as figuring out the color of a shirt, knowing the currency and the expiration date on different packages, to more important tasks, such as getting the temperature off a thermometer or sometimes reading mail to me. And there is assistance in more than 180 languages.
The app is being raved about by users in the visually impaired community.
Moreover, as a blind person the help that I get is requisite and invaluable.
this is because I might be requiring to perform some tasks and I wouldn’t like to either disturb or no one could be available at that particular moment.
As a user I would like to state All what one really need is a few minutes to help change/impact someone’s life for the better. In other words, you can make a world a better place by supporting blind persons like me. another great example and one of the coolest experiences I have had, is when customer agent of Microsoft cleaned and upgraded my PC and stayed on the phone with me for almost 10 hours. With the COVID-19 times, be my eyes support has been valuable when PC stocks or when I need to be connected to forums.
These are tasks that would be extremely difficult without help.
