Google Cloud Vision is an image recognition technology that allows you to remotely process the content of an image and to retrieve its relevant features, including image labeling, face and landmark detection, optical character recognition, and tagging of explicit content. By using specialized REST API, called Google Cloud Vision API, developers exploit such a technology within their own applications. Currently, this cloud-based tool is in limited preview and its services are accessible for trusted tester users only. From a developer perspective, in this paper, we intend to use such software resources in order to achieve assistive technology solutions for people with disabilities. Specifically, we investigate some potential benefits of Cloud Vision tool towards the development of applications for users who are blind.

Abstract

Google Cloud Vision is an image recognition technology that allows you to remotely process the content of an image and to retrieve its relevant features, including image labeling, face and landmark detection, optical character recognition, and tagging of explicit content. By using specialized REST API, called Google Cloud Vision API, developers exploit such a technology within their own applications. Currently, this cloud-based tool is in limited preview and its services are accessible for trusted tester users only. From a developer perspective, in this paper, we intend to use such software resources in order to achieve assistive technology solutions for people with disabilities. Specifically, we investigate some potential benefits of Cloud Vision tool towards the development of applications for users who are blind.
