Microsoft Seeing AI App

The Microsoft Seeing AI app has now been released for use in the UK. At present it seems to be only available for the iphone. I have downloaded the free app and it looks like being a very useful tool for blind and partially sighted people It has a number of functions, such as being able to talk back short lines of text like an address on an envelope, to reading back documents. It can also scan bar codes and identify what the product is. There are other functions that I have not, at this time, tested but hope that anyone who does try this out will leave feedback as to it's value for the VI community. https://www.rnib.org.uk/rnibconnect/microsoft-seeing-ai-app-available-uk

It seems odd that they've started with iPhone for this one, especially as they have their own mobile phone Operating System. I guess it may have something to do with iPhone appearing to be the most popular phone for the visually impaired.
