[access-uk] Re: FW: [BCAB] Can I Eat It? IPhone app

Hello William,

My comment was nothing to do with the can I eat it app! I asked if viswiz could be available for window's. I think the can I eat it app is going the same as the mirical app forget it's name something like digital eyes, I have this and the folks are very nice but for me it's not a good or usfull app.

hi there i just cannot get this app to work at all on my iphone 4 it must be to 
do with me not holding the phone correctly when taking the picture. if i have 
say a serial box in front of the phone 9 inches away it should surely see 
something but it does not. i must get someone here with sight to go over it 
with me to see if they can get it to work. if it worked it would be a real help.

0 0 agreed it really is a fantastic app.  what is the IQ thing you described?  
I just web workers I did have a bit of a problem with a ready microwave meal 
but I got it after about 6 scans and I didn't have eyes around so it did work.  
I wish it was available for the window's platform and you could use your web 
cam what do you all think?

0 0was If you folks havent' tried it yet look at vizwiz.  It's free.  You can 
have web workers, IQ Engines, (an image identifier server), and your Twitter 
followers help you describe pics you take within the app.  I mainly use IQ and 
Web Workers.  The Web Workers were describing to me yesterday the views out of 
all the windows of my house, the colour of the paint in various rooms, the 
breed of Guide Dog my partner has, colour of Jo's purse, tins of peas, brand of 
a bottle of champagne someone sent usas a moving in present.  It's really 
useful and allot of fun.  Allot more effective than OH Moby, which I thought 
was great when i first starting using it but VizWiz beats it hands down because 
of the social aspect.

0 Ing000Ing RNIB were contacted about this app, which will be out next week. 
Here
0 Ing000Ing is the
0 Ing000Ing mail we got:
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing In the app store, Monday June 4th. IngwwwddcanieatitddeuIng
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing The Can I Eat It?  IPhone app is another step towards safe 
independent
0 Ing000Ing living for the blind and visually impaired!
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing For millions of consumers with normal vision, and for the blind and 
the
0 Ing000Ing visually impaired, The Can I Eat It? Barcode app provides 
information
0 Ing000Ing on
0 Ing000Ing tens of thousands of food and drink products from Aldi, Asda, The
0 Ing000Ing Co-operative Food, Lidl, Marks&   Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, 
Tesco
0 Ing000 andIng
0 Ing000Ing Waitrose.
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing How do you use it?  The blind and the visually impaired need to 
switch
0 Ing000Ing on
0 Ing000Ing the IPhone's built-in VoiceOver, which is found in Settings.  Now 
the
0 Ing000Ing Can I Eat It? app is set up to become the eyes for the user.
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing You can choose products that you wish, or don't wish, to eat by 
going
0 Ing000Ing to
0 Ing000Ing Settings and choosing your preferences: for example, gluten free, 
low
0 Ing000Ing fat,
0 Ing000Ing low sugar or vegan... there is an extensive list.
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing Sorted! Now just move the IPhone camera lens over the product; when 
it
0 Ing000Ing gets
0 Ing000Ing to the barcode, you will hear a bleep; if you have switched on
0 Ing000Ing VoiceOver, it
0 Ing000Ing will now speak the information a sighted person will be able to 
read.
0 Ing000Ing Each
0 Ing000Ing product shows its name, tasting note, and dietary and nutritional
0 Ing000Ing information.
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing As most of the products that are found in the Kitchen cupboard, the
0 Ing000Ing fridge
0 Ing000Ing and the freezer are in the Can I Eat It? app's database, the 
problem of
0 Ing000Ing the
0 Ing000Ing blind or visually impaired person mixing up packets of salt with 
sugar,
0 Ing000Ing gravy granules  with coffee, tins of baked beans with rice pudding  
or
0 Ing000Ing tomato soup with sliced peaches  are at an end for Can I Eat It? app
0 Ing000Ing users!
0 Ing000Ing You can tackle your kitchen cupboard with renewed confidence.
0 Ing000Ing
0 Ing000Ing The SuperMarketOwnBrandGuide and Martin Isark, food and drink
0 Ing000Ing journalist,
0 Ing000Ing taster and author, have teamed up with 'the Other media' to produce
