    I'm possibly going blind in the next few years if my doctor is accurate ): so i thought the best thing to make is an app i might use and since this type of app doesn't exist for the majority of android phones (only Google's phones) i made this semi-useful thing where it detects objects and spells them out in English, French, or Arabic, it also imbeds a simple text detector with the ability to copy the captured text, i will definitely be updating it as i improve in machine learning here's the link on google play! have a test and i would love your opinions
    it is also open source on github.com/iseegr8tfuldeadppl/Laya

Laya Forum


Laya's aim is to aid visually impaired people by detecting objects, people, and reading text using the camera. It was developed using Tensorflow's tflite model with 91 detectable objects. Laya offers audio aid in three different languages: English, French, and Arabic. Laya was developed by students from the IGEE institute of Boumerdes - Algeria. Credits were due in the app's Credit page found in the Settings section.
