Thanks anyway Steve and I too couldn't find it.

Perhaps it will arrive in some shape or form in the not-too-distaant future.

I know now how to access the store but can't appear to find an edit box to search for apps that way but have to scroll all the way down.

Hi Tony,

Seems I was wrong, I can't find it on the Windows store.  Sorry about that.

All the best

Steve

Hi Jackie all,

Thanks indeed to Saqib and MS and I wonder if anyone knows if the app
can be downloaded to Windows 10 as it's MS-supported?

Yes indeed, I completely endorse that.  We can all go off on one
when something doesn't work, but this is frankly sensational
progress on the part of Saqib and Microsoft.

Kind regards,

Agree with all of this Jackie and would only add that it just goes
to show what can be achieved when you set a blind person to design
and develop something for blind people. I think Saqib is to be
massively congratulated and Microsoft highly praised for supporting
and encouraging
this work.

Forgive the cross-posting, but for anyone who hasn't yet downloaded
this app from the App Store, it really is the best thing you could
do today if you have the time and inclination.  Until now, it has
never been possible to read handwriting, and while this aspect of
Seeing AI is in its early stages, I find it absolutely brilliant to
pick up the post and read handwritten material just to indicate who
it is from if nothing else.  At a time where people are sending and
receiving Christmas cards, I find it liberating to check the
envelopes to ensure they are for us, then open and read the cards
from our families and friends instead of putting them in a pile to
wait for sighted assistance.  I haven't found one yet that Seeing
AI won't read, and even though it isn't word perfect, it's good
enough to know they are for us, and who they are from.  One card
even had a note in it that I was
able to decipher, it's truly amazing that we have this.
If there ever comes a time when we will have to pay for this app, I
most certainly would as it has so many uses.

Kind regards,
