Google’s Lookout App Helps Blind People Experience the World

Google’s Lookout App Helps Blind People Experience the World
 

Google has launched a new app designed to help blind people explore their surroundings.

The free app, called Lookout, is currently available to users in the United States who own a Google Pixel device. The company says it hopes to bring Lookout to more devices and additional countries soon.

The app was first announced at Google’s I/O developer conference in May 2018. Since then, the company says it has been testing and working to improve the quality of its results.

The app uses technology similar to Google Lens. That product uses machine learning to recognize text and objects through a device’s camera. Users can then receive information about or take actions related to the text and recognized objects.

Lookout builds on this same technology, but aims to provide assistance to people who are blind or have low vision.

The app uses a device’s camera to recognize text and objects and then provide voice descriptions about what it sees.

 

Lookout is not designed to describe everything, but instead seeks to search out things that people would most likely care about. The app can learn to judge what things are most important to a person over time.

Google says the app operates best when the user wears a device around the neck or inside a pocket, with the camera lens pointed outward.

Lookout has three main settings for people to use.

The Explore setting is designed to provide assistance for people carrying out daily activities or for identifying things in new places. A Shopping setting can capture products and help users identify their money. The Quick Read setting can help users go through their mail, read signs or identify other printed materials.

Users can control parts of the app through a fingerprint sensor. For example, the sensor can be used to change operating settings or go through recent results captured by the camera. The app has three different detail levels that can be activated to provide more or less information about objects.

Google says the goal of the app is to provide more independence to the nearly 253 million people in the world who are blind or have severe vision difficulties.

There are other apps and devices designed to assist these people, too.

Microsoft’s free Seeing AI app works similarly to Google Lookout. Microsoft calls its system – launched for iPhone users in 2017 - a “talking camera for the blind.” Seeing AI can recognize text, objects and people and speaks results to users.

 

Microsoft says the system can provide audio sounds that relate to current light levels around the user. A recently released version also reportedly lets users put their fingers over a photo of something to get a sense of how the object feels. The app produces small vibrations and sounds to help this process.

Very, really and absolutely

Adverbs
Very, really,
 and absolutely are adverbs. They modify adjectives and other adverbs. They are usually placed before the adjective or adverb that they are modifying.

Gradable adjectives
Gradable adjectives
 are describing words that can be modified to make their meaning more or less intense. Words such as: a little, quite, really, and very are able to modify this group of adjectives. Examples of gradable adjectives are: happy, good, hot, funny.

  • I'm very happy. 
  • The weather's been really hot lately.
  • The film wasn't good. It was only a little funny.

Non-gradable adjectives
Non-gradable adjectives
 (also known as extreme or strong adjectives) cannot be used with words such as very. This is because they already contain the idea of very. The word thrilled means very happy. Because of this, when we wish to make a non-gradable adjective stronger, we need to use words such as 'really', 'utterly' or 'absolutely'. Finally, many gradable adjectives have non-gradable pairsvery happy - thrilled, very good - wonderful, very hot - boiling, very funny - hilarious.

  • I'm absolutely thrilled!
  • The weather's been boiling lately.
  • The film was absolutely wonderful. The dialogue was utterly hilarious!

New Zealand mosque attacks: what we know

ASEAN+ March 16, 2019 01:00

By AFP

Christchurch, New Zealand - The quiet New Zealand city of Christchurch was struck by two deadly attacks on Friday, with 49 people killed and another 20 seriously injured after gun assaults on mosques as Muslims worshipped.

Here is what we know so far about the attacks:

What happened?

During afternoon prayers on Friday -- Islam's holy day -- a gunman opened fire inside the Masjid al Noor mosque in central Christchurch, killing forty-one. Another seven were slain at a second mosque five kilometres away in suburban Linwood, three of them outside the building. It is unclear where the remaining victim died.

Witnesses said some victims were shot at close range, with a Palestinian man at one of the mosques saying he saw someone shot in the head.

He described shots fired in quick succession and scenes of panic as people started running out "covered in blood".

Another said he saw his wife lying dead outside as he escaped, with one more saying he witnessed children being shot.

What was the police response?

Police imposed a city-wide lockdown, sending armed officers to a number of scenes, and two IEDs (improvised explosive devices) were found attached to a vehicle and neutralised.

Three men and a woman were detained. One of the men was later charged with murder, and two others remained in custody, though their role in the attacks was not clear.

Police warned Muslims not to visit mosques "anywhere in New Zealand", a country of nearly five million where mass shootings are rare.

Amid heightened tensions, the military carried out controlled explosions on two bags left unattended in central Auckland, although they turned out not to be suspicious.

Christchurch city council offered a helpline for parents looking for kids attending a mass climate change rally nearby.

New Zealand police also evacuated residents living near a property in the city of Dunedin, some 350 kilometres (220 miles) from Christchurch, that they believe is linked to the attacks.

Who were the victims?

A Jordanian man was killed in the attack, the country's foreign ministry said, the first and only victim identified so far.

People from around the world were in the mosque at the time of the assault.

Among them were were six Indonesians -- three of whom were reported safe, the country's foreign minister Retno Marsudi said, adding they were searching for the others.

A Saudi Arabian man, two Malaysians, two Turks and at least five Jordanians were among those wounded.

India's high commissioner to New Zealand said nine people of Indian nationality or origin were missing.

Young children were among 48 people being treated at Christchurch Hospital.

Some narrowly escaped the carnage, including the Bangladesh cricket team who arrived at the Masjid al Noor mosque minutes after the shooting began.

Manager Khaled Mashud said the team saw "bloodied people coming out of the mosque... we kept our heads down in the bus in case of any firing".

What is known about the attacker?

He has not been officially named, but Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he was an Australian citizen, and described him as "an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist".

He published a racist manifesto on Twitter before the shooting then livestreamed his rampage on Facebook.

Entitled "The Great Replacement", the 74-page manifesto said the gunman -- who identified himself as an Australia-born, 28-year-old white male from a low-income, working-class family -- had wanted to attack Muslims.

The gunman also said he had travelled for several years, visiting France, Spain and Portugal, but Australian media reported before going to New Zealand he had been a personal fitness trainer in the town of Grafton north of Sydney.

The title of the manifesto has the same name as a conspiracy theory originating in France that believes European populations are being displaced in their homelands by immigrant groups with higher birth rates.

A number of pictures were posted to a social media account of a semi-automatic weapon covered in the names of historical figures, many of whom were involved in the killing of Muslims.

Christchurch shooting: Gunman livestreamed incident for 17 minutes

ASEAN+ March 15, 2019 15:27

By The Straits Times 
Asia News Network

Christchurch - The gunman in a mosque shooting in Christchurch livestreamed the incident for 17 minutes, local media reported.

The shooter identified himself as "Brenton Tarrant" - a white, 28-year-old Australia-born man, NZ Herald reported. The livestream began as the gunman drove to the Al Noor Mosque in Deans Ave, parking his car in a nearby driveway.

According to NZ Herald, the beige stationwagon contains a cache of weapons and ammunition in the front passenger seat and boot, along with petrol cannisters.

The gunman was armed with at least one semi-automatic firearm and multiple ammunition clips. Messages in white writing were scrawled on the gun and ammunition.

Once inside he began shooting indiscriminately. A second victim tried to crawl for their life in the main hallway but was shot several more times.

People cowering in corners of a room were all shot as the gunman blocked the hallway, cutting off anyone's attempt to escape.

The gunman stalked the mosque rooms firing repeatedly, stopping several times to re-load, NZ Herald reported.

He then exited the mosque through the front door - after just under three minutes inside and headed into the street - firing random shots as cars drove past.

He returned to a beige Subaru stationwagon parked in a nearby driveway to get more ammunition from the boot.

He fired more shots on the street at no apparent target and said: "Looks like we won't get the bird today boys".

He then re-entered the mosque to check for survivors - and began firing again into the people lying motionless.

The 17-minute video ends as the gunman drives away from the scene at speed.

In a lenghty manifesto published online the supposed shooter outlined who he was and why he carried out the massacre at the Christchurch mosque, NZ Herald reported.
