Supersense AI


Description of App: 

Supersense is the smartest and simplest scanner app made for the blind and visually impaired users to read any text format independently.

With the power of AI, Supersense automatically figures out what you are trying to scan, guides you on how to point the camera, and reads the content in the right format. Its unique design minimizes the time and frustrations of scanning and reading text for a blind and visually impaired user.

Full features of Supersense:

- Smart Scanner: The app looks at the text you are trying to read and the AI figures out whether it is a short text, a book, a currency, or something else

- Smart Guidance: The app guides you on how to point the camera and finds the best angle to have the most accurate results

- Read all sorts of texts: documents, mails, books, currencies or handwriting

- Import: Read and explore text from the photos in your camera roll

Most features work without an internet connection so that the blind or visually impaired user can use it in any situation. The app has full VoiceOver accessibility support and is available in multiple languages.

Supersense is developed by Mediate, an MIT-spinoff AI start-up based in Boston. Mediate develops innovative computer vision systems with the support of the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Veterans Affairs. This app is just the first step in our mission to develop groundbreaking AI solutions for people with visual disabilities. We have developed the app with principles of human-centered design and with the assistance of blind and visually impaired users. We also partnered with many organizations that help the blind and low vision community.
