Do you or someone you know have difficulty visualizing surroundings, viewing the contents of documents or recognizing colors? There’s an app that can help!
Sullivan+ is a visual-aid app by TUAT Co. to enhance the accessibility of visually-impaired and low-vision users. It works through your smartphone camera to act as a visual aid when exploring your surroundings.
What Sullivan+ Can Do
This app has many functions to assist users during their everyday lives. They are as follows:
AI Mode: Artificial intelligence (AI) automatically finds the best results that fit the taken photos.
Text Recognition: Do you find difficulty checking the contents of various documents like mail, magazines and newspapers? With Sullivan+, just point your camera toward the text you want recognized, and the app will read it aloud.
Face Recognition: What about when you meet a new person and you want to know more about them? The app recognizes a person photographed with a camera and tells you the person’s age and gender.
Image Description: Have you wondered what your surroundings look like? Sullivan+ identifies objects around you and creates a sentence that describes the identified scene.
Light Brightness: Are you not sure if the lights are on or off? Using the Sullivan+ app, the front camera of the smartphone tells you the light brightness.
Magnifier: What if you have low-vision challenges but not total visual impairment? Using the zoom function of the camera, the app enlarges or reduces an object or text or inverts the color.
