Description: Boop Light Detector is an an app developed for iOS users (8.0 and above) to detect levels of light and interpret this information with sound. It allows its blind and visually impaired users to detect whether lights are on or off. It covers a broad range of light levels which span from sensing daylight through open windows to checking whether the indicator light is on for a wifi router.
The level of light detected by the phone camera is transmitted by a pinging sound. This sound increases its frequency and volume as the luminosity detected gets brighter. It also features an optional vibrate mode that buzzes with increasing frequency for brighter luminance.
Accessibility information: Boop Light Detector uses voice over features. Double click to exit the app. Use two finger magic scrub to turn vibrate on or off. Tap the center of the screen to get a reading of the luminosity in percentage units of 0-100. Use the volume controls at the side of the phone to change the volume of Boop or set it to mute.
