Title
(EN) AUGMENTED IMAGING ASSISTANCE FOR VISUAL IMPAIRMENT
(FR) ASSISTANCE D'IMAGERIE AUGMENTÉE POUR DÉFICIENCE VISUELLE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems, apparatuses, services, platforms, and methods are discussed herein that provide assistance for user interface devices. In one example, an assistance application is provided comprising an imaging system configured to capture an image of a scene, an interface system configured to provide data associated with the image to a distributed assistance service that responsively processes the data to recognize properties of the scene and establish feedback for a user based at least on the properties of the scene, and a user interface configured to provide the feedback to the user.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes, des appareils, des services, des plateformes et des procédés permettant de fournir une assistance à des dispositifs d'interface utilisateur. Dans un exemple, une application d'assistance proposée comprend un système d'imagerie configuré pour capturer une image d'une scène, un système d'interface configuré pour fournir des données associées à l'image à un service d'assistance distribué qui traite en réponse les données afin de reconnaître des propriétés de la scène et d'établir une rétroaction pour un utilisateur en se basant au moins sur des propriétés de la scène, et une interface utilisateur configurée pour fournir la rétroaction à l'utilisateur.
