Identification Apps

There is a huge range of identification applications (apps) available for smartphones and tablet devices. These apps use the smartphone's camera to recognise and speak aloud the colour of an object, value of a note or name of an object. Due to the sheer number of identification apps available, it is not possible for Assist Ireland to list all of these apps as individual products in this section.

We recommend searching the Apple Apps Store or Android Apps Store to browse the apps available, and if necessary or possible, speak with an occupational therapist or speech and language therapist for advice on what apps might be suitable for you.

If you are new to this technology and would like to know more about smartphones and apps and how they can help you, we have an Information Sheet Apps for People with Disabilities and Older People which explains what they are and what they can do. There are sections within this document entitled Colour Identification Apps, Money Identification Apps, Object Identification Apps and Light Identification Apps that give examples of some of the identification apps available.
