LookTel Money Reader

$9.99
Looktel money reader
Developer: IPPLEX

Description: LookTel Money Reader instantly recognizes currency and speaks the denomination, enabling people experiencing visual impairments or blindness to quickly and easily identify and count bills. Point the camera of your iOS device at a bill and the application will tell you the denomination in real-time.
It recognizes more than 20 currencies.
 
To me is one of the best apps in the world for the visually impaired and blind! You can use this app without internet connection.
You can use it without Voiceover if you can still see a little because the bill denomination is placed in big number on the screen. I recommend having your earphones plugged in if you are totally blind so when Voiceover speaks the denomination of the bill noone else will hear it! Listen here to my interview with the people from LookTel

iOS 7: This app is totally accessible with VOICEOVER!
If you have some sight left, go to SETTINGS – GENERAL – ACCESSIBILITY – TURN OFF REVERSE COLORS and then open Money Reader and when it recognizes a bill will show it in large size with black background so will be easy to see if you have VOICEOVER turned off so people dont hear how much is that bill, this is useful if you dont have your earphones with you and you have some sight.
