TapTapSee Home Screen



Description of App

TapTapSee is a mobile camera application designed specifically for the blind and visually impaired iOS users, powered by the CloudSight.ai image recognition API. The app utilizes the device’s camera and VoiceOver functions to photograph objects and identify them out loud for the user.

In TapTapSee, the user double-taps the device’s screen to photograph any two or three dimensional object at any angle, and have it accurately analyzed and defined within seconds. The device’s VoiceOver then speaks the identification audibly to the user.


TapTapSee includes the following additional features:

  • Repetition of the last image’s identification
  • ability to upload images from the camera roll
  • share identification via Twitter, Facebook, text or email
  • rotor reader
  • flash toggle
  • ability to save the identified image to the camera roll with the attached tag.
