What People are Saying

“I didn't even know that we could be so precise in the description of a photo, more surely badly taken. With Be My Eyes, AI makes it possible to reorganize information and better understand. In short, I am impressed, delighted and regret not having been interested in it earlier!”

Sophie, Be My Eyes User

“Be My Eyes not only helped me upgrade my friend's computer efficiently but has continuously surpassed expectations. It's gone from awesome to a level of excellence that the English language doesn't have words for!”
