The idea behind FeyeND is to assist visually challenged people to locate things in their surroundings easily. It is an interactive audio based app which uses natural language processing and computer vision. On request, speak out to the app what you are looking for. The app uses the camera to sense the surrounding. It sends the voice command to a language processing API to identify which object the user is looking for. It sends the image to the Microsoft computer vision API to detect the objects in the image. It checks if the object asked by the user is on the objects found by the CV API. It speaks out the response. - Progress so far
