In order to help make life simpler and effortless for the visually-impaired, General Directorate for Smart Services at the Dubai Police launched this smart service.
Images for the blind are analysed and explained to them phonetically through the smart service launched by the Dubai Police on their official app. The service comes within the framework of the Government of Dubai to make the emirate disabled-friendly.
How the app functions
Phone cameras capture images and then the smart application analyses them. Then via the phone, the app explains what the images are, said a top official.
The service can be activated on iPhone, he said, adding that people can log on to the Dubai Police app and the service can be accessed then just by shaking the phone. Once the service is activated, the user can press the smart camera button, which will take images. Then the application will analyse the pictures and give a commentary on them.
