Abstract

This paper brings to light an important discussion on how to create better assistive technologies for visually impaired people with the new advances in the computer vision field. Until very recently, assistive technology solutions required large and expensive hardware, as well as complex software. However, this scenario seems to be changing with web services on cloud that turns available computer vision features, offering image and video content analysis. The challenge is on how the results of these analyses will be processed and which will be the action or interaction displayed afterwards, showing the importance of appropriate user interface to visually impaired.
