Description

Small acts of kindness with global impact! • Dubai Expo 2020 Global Innovator • Winner of GOV Design Awards 2018 - Digital Experience • Winner of Tech4Good Awards 2018 - AbilityNet Accessibility Award Lend your sight to blind and low vision people through a live video connection, or receive assistance through the global network of volunteers. Be My Eyes connects blind and low vision users with sighted volunteers or company representatives who can assist them with a range of tasks. Blind and low vision users can request help from a sighted volunteer, who is notified on their phone. As soon as the first volunteer accepts the request for help, a live audio-video connection is established between the two parties. Through the blind or low vision user’s rear-facing camera, the volunteer can see the item or subject the user needs assistance with and provide the visual description he or she needs. As a blind or low vision user, you can request assistance through Be My Eyes at any time of the day, from anywhere in the world, in more than 180 languages. Be My Eyes connects you to a sighted volunteer who speaks your language and can help you with anything from simple tasks, like checking expiry dates, to more complicated situations, like navigation or finding a lost item. With the Specialized Help feature, you can receive help directly from our partner companies if you have issues or questions regarding their specific products or services. Just tap the Specialized Help option and choose a company from the menu to call through Be My Eyes. You will be directly connected to a company representative through a live video connection. As a sighted volunteer, you’ll receive a notification when a blind or low vision user requires some assistance. The first volunteer to answer the request will be connected to the blind or low vision user, so don’t worry if you’re not able to answer the call, another volunteer will step in instead. Be My Eyes only takes a few minutes of your time, making it easy to fit into any schedule and make a real difference in another person’s day. - Live audio-video connection between the two parties - 90 % of calls answered within 30 seconds - Add the languages you speak in settings

    Although calls are few and far between, it’s great to see an app that has millions able to assist the low vision and blind people of the world! When calls come, I know that if I can’t answer it immediately, there are thousands the receive the same alert.

    Think this is a great idea, but never get called. I'm sure there are more volunteers than those needing service but would love to help out.

    At first I didn’t get any calls. I thought it was a good idea but I didn’t get to try it so that kinda bummed me out. Today I got my first call! It was absolutely amazing. I simply chose an outfit for the kind man. However, it made really happy. It made my day! Also, the connection was flawless and I also generally like the design of the app! This should be the future! It is revolutionary!!!

    I love the app and have been able to help one person so far but, I would really like to have the option to change the alert sound. The sound now is not loud enough to be heard when I’m in public. Please think about adding that option. Thanks
  • This app is genius!

    Such a small thing for me to take a minute out of my day to answer a call from a blind person. you are helping someone with something that seems trivial to us but bc they’re blind, they need the help. If i miss a call, i feel solace to know someone else had gotten it.

    It would be helpful to allow volunteers to enter their availability to receive calls.

    I have received two video calls from the blind in 2018. Identified a pill, helped read someone’s thermostat and show which buttons to push to bring the heat on.

    Such a great app. There is no pressure to answer a call if you are busy or can’t answer. When you do it is easy and convenient for both parties. It’s a great way to help out with very little effort!

    Non si sa mai chi c’è al di là del telefono!!! Ti chiamano anche persino vedenti, gruppi di ragazzi ignoranti che trovano divertimento nell’importunare chi risponde alle chiamate! Dovete gestire questa App in modo migliore!

    I had high hopes when I learned of the app. Still think it’s an awesome concept but after signing up in July, I’ve yet to receive a call. I’d love to help, and would love to receive a call & update the rating but I guess until I do I have to leave at 1 bc I’m still not sure it really works.
  • Feels great to be helpful!

    The best app! It’s a blessing to have eyes and to help those who aren’t able to see well or to see at all. My first call humbled me.

    I was watching YouTube one day I got this ad I so far have only gotten one call but it’s nice to know that there are close to 4 million people that are willing to spare a few minutes to help someone other then themselves. If you like to help, this is the app for you!!

    I’m not technically savvy Yet this App is so simple and user friendly To be of service aiding others with Big & little daily tasks, is a Gift to all involved. “Sometimes the greatest contribution we can make is to allow others to contribute to us” I weep with joy when I read the stories This is the kind of world ( Community) I hope to age into. Cooperation vs competition

    So far I have only received a few calls but I’m always happy to drop everything I’m doing to help out 100%. These guys are improving lives.
  • amazing app, just not fit for me

    5
    By wixnzy
    this app is truly amazing and has a great purpose, but it gives me too much anxiety to function. a very nice man asked me to translate a password for him to get into some sort of program, and he did everything he should have and could have done. i just get too afraid and anxious to be able to properly help, i think i get scared because i know subconsciously that these people can’t help they’re blind and struggle so much because of it and that thought is too much for me to bear. if i could go back i would’ve helped him out better because he deserved so much more than me, and for anyone who has that type of anxiety towards these situations please don’t download it because someone who can help will happily do the job for you, it’s okay to not be able to help out sometimes, just remember that :)
  • Happy to help!

    This app is so fantastic and I am so happy to be able to be of service to the blind users of this app. My father and grandfather have both passed and had degenerative eye diseases that rendered them blind so this is especially dear to my heart. I have only received one call but it was so heart warming and this is just a genius way to help people all over the world. I hope to get many many more calls! Thank you.

    After signing up 7 weeks ago, I got my first call today. It made my day. Helped a gentleman identify a DVD he was looking for. Loved being able to help.
