On My Terms: Working with Visual Assistance Apps

On My Terms: Working with Visual Assistance Apps


What could someone do if they had visual assistance whenever they needed it, not just when it was convenient for someone else? Banking, shopping, traveling, cooking, setting a thermostat, getting knowledgeable help with the computer – a whole range of aging-in-place tasks can be done with assistance from a smartphone app. Join Aira’s Jenine Stanley and Be My Eyes’ Hans Wiberg to learn more about visual interpreting and specialized help through their apps. Find out how visual assistance fits into the tools to access the world as someone who is blind or low vision.
