nutritional information and all sort of stuff. I pointed my phone into the
fridge and it told me I had Tropicana Orange Juice, I turned it a bit and here was Lucern Milk. astounding.'

What's new in version 2.2
Major improvements in photo recognition. Goggles will now check the photo and come up with a description of the image. This means that for example, it may not recognise a picture of Mount Everest as such, but it will definitely recognise it as being a mountain.
Text recognition has been improved a lot as well, it is now able to read and speak out most handwritten text as well. Together with the built-in translation function, this makes goggles a powerful tool indeed.
Talking Goggles has been a very popular app among the blind and visually impaired community, and we hope this update will prove to be an even more useful tool. Best of luck with this update, please let us know if you have any recommendations or suggestions!
