About Be My Eyes for Work

Be My Eyes for Work is an internal communications tool that makes the workplace more accessible for people (employees, students or other members of your organization) who are blind or have a low level of vision by connecting them to their sighted colleagues or support staff who solve company-related issues quickly and remotely over live video.

Employees can connect to a large or small group of colleagues with the press of a button through the Be My Eyes app, initiating a video-call with relevant contacts in HR, IT, programmatic staff or other departments to quickly solve tasks that require visual assistance.
