Be My Eyes is a mobile solution designed to ease the lives of people with visual impairment. Its main functionality revolves around making video calls so that blind people or those with low vision can communicate with volunteers and receive the much-needed help with daily tasks. Be My Eyes makes essentials like checking an expiry date, choosing clothes of the right color, or navigating through TV or other device settings possible.

So far, Be My Eyes has built a community of 3 million volunteers supporting those with vision disabilities. The app caters to a global audience and supports over 185 languages.

We highly support the Be My Eyes mission and would like to make our contribution to making this app even more appealing and convenient for users. Our QA engineers tested the app from the standpoint of a volunteer, and here is how Be My Eyes can be improved.

Be My Eyes is a simple, free tool connecting visually impaired people with volunteers helping the former cope with daily routines.
Our test run revealed that the app contains some functional and UI bugs and problems with selecting languages and notifications.
I recommend performing ad-hoc and smoke testing to detect similar issues. Exploring the app with these types of tests will help check the product’s main features as well as go through unconventional scenarios. Ad-hoc and smoke testing are also handy for finding critical malfunctions and layout issues early on.
