TapTapSee is designed to help the blind and visually impaired identify objects they encounter in their everyday lives.

Simply tap anywhere on the screen to take a picture. TapTapSee can photograph any two or three-dimensional object at any angle and speak the identification back to the user (Note: Spoken identification requires VoiceOver to be turned on).

TapTapSee helps blind and visually impaired users become more independent in their day-to-day activities.

TapTapSee has garnered multiple podcasts, reviews, as well as positive feedback within the community:

TapTapSee reviews

Could not get it to play talk back. it would identify the item, then print what the item was at the bottom of the screen, for me to READ. if I'm going blind, that will not help me. I need to hear what the item is. uninstalled! Thanks for wasting my tim

Last night I turned my phone on to check the time, I still had my app pulled up on my screen and my camera started going haywire, it took like 30 or more pictures. I don't know what happened, it is not my phone or operator error, I didn't even touch the camera when it was taking the photos.
