  1. In response to the video I today released update 1.73 of The vOICe for Android on Google Play at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=vOICe.vOICe It is meant to launch on Google Glass when saying "OK Glass, start imaging, The vOICe for Android", and then run in fullscreen mode. For side-loading on Google Glass, the APK file of The vOICe for Android 1.73 is at http://www.seeingwithsound.com/phone/vOICeAndroid.apk Note that development work is ongoing without testing for lack of Google Glass to test with, so there is a high probability of things not quite working as intended. Beta testers are most welcome.

  2. Xcellent report. 
    In your spare time, if you have an iPhone, the vOICe people created an app called EyeMusic which does edge detection also alphanumerics using same tech as vOICeover. It has a training mode. It is interesting to set it to one second interval sampling in B&W and train.  The code is open and available.

  3. Marilyn Martin The EyeMusic app for iOS is not from the same stable as The vOICe, but from a team in Israel. An iPhone app that comes closer in soundscape appearance to The vOICe is "Voice vision", available on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/voice-vision/id580057898 Of course iOS apps cannot run on Google Glass. The web page about The vOICe for Android is at http://www.seeingwithsound.com/android.htm

  4. I stand corrected. Need to be more careful in my attributions. Checking out Voice Vision.

  5. So you would be Peter B. L. Meijer that created The vOICe project that inspired me to become a GLASS Explorer researching an developing systems for the blind/VI.

    Wow.

    Amir Amedi is EyeMusic app and researcher on sensory substitution.

    No need to reply unless I've fumbled again.

  6. Marilyn Martin No fumbling, don't worry. :-) I would love to be a Glass Explorer too, but will probably wait at least until Glass becomes available through regular channels in The Netherlands. However, any feedback on the extent to which The vOICe for Android currently runs on Glass would be great. http://www.seeingwithsound.com/android.htm
