Episode 92: Interview with Microsoft Seeing AI founder Saqib Shaikh, and a walk around Mosen Towers to demonstrate Seeing AI’s World Channel

Microsoft’s free Seeing AI app helps blind and low vision iPhone and iPad users with visual tasks. And now, it’s added lidar for Pro Apple devices that come with the feature.

I speak with Microsoft Seeing AI’s founder, Saqib Shaikh, a blind person himself who came up with a practical solution to tackle many of the visual tasks we as blind people face daily. We talk about Seeing AI’s future and where it’s going.

Then I take a walk around Mosen Towers with my iPhone 12 Pro Max to give you a practical demonstration of Seeing AI’s World Channel. I recommend listening to this demonstration with headphones to get the full immersive experience.
