I took a photo of a few products from my cupboard and it identified them immediately, and offered access to the internet to learn more.' 'I then turned the can a bit and it started recognizing bits of text from nutritional information and all sort of stuff. I pointed my phone into the fridge and it told me I had Tropicana Orange Juice, I turned it a bit and here was Lucern Milk. astounding.' Talking Goggles gives you amazing possibilities.

App Reviews

  • Used to be a nice app, but now doesn't work

    By eric oyen
    This was a beautiful app at one time. However, over the last 2 or 3 versions, some problems have crept in. About 3 revisions back, the video capture started causing the app to crash out of the active window. It also wouldn't read anything inside said video after app was restarted. Recently, the read function has effectively ceased to operate in any mode. It will not read either in video capture or image capture mode. This makes the app useless for the blind. Until these issues are corrected, I will not recommend the use of this app to any blind person.
  • Completely useless

    By Cheese whizz678
    I was hoping this app would assist with a disabled friend's poor vision in the identification of everyday items. I tried many simple objects(phone, chair, stapler, pencil) but it could not recognize anything. A total waste of money.

    Talking goggles is wonderful:) I love the self-voicing part of the app and how it speaks iin a brittish female voice any text on a product label it can detect:) This app rocks and is voiceover friendly:) Nice job sparkling apps and keep up awesome work:)
  • And innovative product giving blind people access to items around them

    By MrHudson
    While this app is not perfect, it sure does help in situations where you find a sign, poster, or other item that you know has print on it. If you hold the phone near it for a few seconds you will ultimately get a few words or perhaps the entire message read aloud. Very useful and in the specially high-value at the going price.

    I bought the app without thinking. I was told about one that worked and I thought this one was it. Clearly it is not! It does not recognize ANYTHING. Don't waste your money. Can I give it negative 1,000,000,000 stars? I WANT A REFUND APPLE!
  • waste of money

    By artcollector1705
    Waste of money. Does not even recognize Mona Lisa.
  • Horrible

    By Jesse0816
    Never thought I would care that I just wasted 99cent but this App shouldn't even be on the App Store..
  • Like magic

    By Rainlady007
    This is truly great. I have a large book collection and it recognizes almost all of them. I can imagine all the possibilities this gives. You can also easily copy the text to use elsewhere, perfect. This app even reads foreign languages and translates them, so next time I have a menu card in front of me that I don't understand I know which app to use! Amazing.
