LookTel MoneyReader and the SA Currency
Submitted by sechaba on Thursday, November 14, 2013.
Hi I am a blind South African who uses an iPhone . Currently purchased a LookTell MoneyReader App in the south african store, but it does not seem to work with the local currency. Any possibilities of ensuring that the Rand is recognised?
As per the description given in the app page, I think south African is not included on those 21 countries. Hope they may add more countries in future. See the short description and list of countries here below. LookTel Money Reader instantly recognizes currency and speaks the denomination, enabling people experiencing visual impairments or blindness to quickly and easily identify and count bills. Point the camera of your iOS device at a bill and the application will tell you the denomination in real-time. Twenty one currencies are supported: the US Dollar, Australian Dollar, Bahraini Dinar, Brazilian Real, Belarusian Ruble, British Pound, Canadian Dollar, Euro, Hungarian Forint, Israeli Shekel, Indian Rupee, Japanese Yen, Kuwaiti Dinar, Mexican Peso, New Zealand Dollar, Polish Zloty, Russian Ruble, Saudi Arabian Riyal, Singapore Dollar, and United Arab Emirates Dirham.
Use the app in the family called look tell recognizer. just take photos of the notes, front and back, record the description and you are set.
Ok carol, but that sounds like a lot of work.
