Fred is legally blind, but he knows of a new app by Microsoft called Seeing AI. It offers text reading, barcode scanning, it will tell you if your light is on. It basically narrates the world around you. Currently only available, quite ironically, on all Apple devices.
Leo says another option is called Be My Eyes. It works on Android.
Larry wants to use his camera with Be My Eyes on his iPhone, an app for the vision impaired. Leo says the first thing he'll need is a camera that can connect over Wi-Fi. Then he would need an app to allow him to remotely control it from the iPhone. Leo says that iOS sandboxes each app for security purposes, so one app can't compromise others, so he likely won't be able to use a separate camera with that particular app.
