Apps for blind and visual impaired

This is a very handy app that simply emits a sound which intensifies as a light source is found and approached. Light Detector will help find any lights left on or locate windows and exits. Basic but functional, this application does what is says and does it well.

Have you ever listened to light? With Light Detector, now you can!

Light Detector transforms any natural or artificial light source it encounters into sound. Light Detector is easy to use! Just run the application and point your iPhone camera in any direction. You will hear a higher or lower sound depending on the intensity of the light.

If you are blind, Light Detector helps you to be more independent in many daily activities. At home, point your iPhone towards the ceiling to understand where the light fixtures are and whether they are switched on. In a room move the device along the wall to check if there is a window and where it is. You can find out whether the shadows are drawn by moving the device up and down.

Bring Light Detector with you to discover what is around you at the speed of light.
