Description of App
"Banknotes under Mahatma Gandhi (New) series with change in the size and design were introduced in November 2016. Under this new series, banknotes in the denominations of Rs.10, Rs.20, Rs.50, Rs.100, Rs.200 Rs.500 and Rs.2000 have since been released. The Reserve Bank of India has been sensitive to the challenges faced by the visually challenged in conducting their day to day business with Indian banknotes. This application will aid the visually impaired to identify the denomination of Indian banknotes of Mahatma Gandhi Series and Mahatma Gandhi (New) series by capturing the image of the notes placed in front of rear mobile camera. The application will generate audio and non-sonic notification intimating the currency note denomination to the user."
Too late and insensitive; really!
Nice to know how the Indian Government finally understood the challenges of the print disabled in identifying currency but they as usual are too late and passive when it comes to developing solutions for the community.
I already got the lifetime paid version of Cash Reader and although I was so enthusiastic about it; didn't use it for the money's worth. It's still nice to have a currency reading app. handy. This app. is going to change the game for those in the community that can't afford a paid version. Thank you for sharing your review it was informative and detailed. For a first time review of an IOS app. you did a great job and I encourage you to write more reviews on this forum
I agree with you.
however, though it has bugs, it is still appreciated.
thanks a lot for your encouragement :)
does the cash reader support new Indian currency? which was introduced after demonetization?
Re: Hi; Khushi
Yes, the Cash reader is fully accessible; no bugs and does read Indian currency post demonetization and has regular updates when ever there is a change in currency or new currency is introduced thanks to the great government we have
Oh, okay, thanks.
Oh, okay, thanks.
Seeing AI also works from what I've managed to research and it's free.
Indian Currency Reading Apps
In my opinion Cash Reader is the best, followed by Seeing AI & then Mani.
However, cash reader is a paid app. So, I guess Seeing AI is a better option if somebody is looking for a free option.
