Project background / Contexte du projet
Digital accessibility is slowly becoming more common however there are still many problems that a person with visual impairment faces every day. Some pictures that you might come across have alternative text which describes what is in the picture for people who can’t see for themselves however not all of them do. There are a few applications that exist which use AI to tell you about your surroundings by being able to take a picture of something around you. However that technology is rarely available for images or pictures that are already on a device. Your task is to create an application that could detect what is in an image when it does not have any alternative text. It should be easy to use and be able to say out loud the description (text to speech).
