The Envision Ally app is a free standalone app that connects an Ally, a chosen family member or friend, with an Envisioner, an Envision Glasses user, via a video call. When an Envisioner is confronted with a task or situation in which additional visual information could be useful, they can reach out to their Ally, for assistance.
The Envisioner activates the Call An Ally feature on the Envision Glasses, and the Ally receives a notification on their phone. Once answered an Ally sees what is in front of the Envisioner and provides assistance. With the help of an Ally, a number of tasks can be made more accessible, from navigating new environments to choosing a colour-matched outfit.
The Envision Ally app can be installed for free by an Ally from the App Store on iOS or Play Store on Android. Here are the links for both of them:
