The vOICe for Android augmented reality application translates live views from an Android camera phone or tablet into sounds that you hear via the device's speaker or headset, thus targeting sensory substitution applications for the blind, and even synthetic vision. For low-vision users it may offer augmented vision. The vOICe uses pitch for height and loudness for brightness in a left to right scan of any view. It also includes a talking color identifier, real-time OCR, talking compass, talking face detection and GPS based talking locator that speaks the names of nearby streets and intersections. Experimental tactile graphics mode. Best used with Android smart glasses.
