Technology is opening doors for more and more blind people. But even with e-readers and braille devices, something's often missing from books for the blind -- the pictures. Now a Bay Area group is using the power of crowdsourcing to help blind people see what they've been missing.
Poet is a free, open-source web tool that lets hundreds of volunteers describe images for blind readers in their spare time.
"Just a little extra knowledge about what a picture conveyed can make all the difference," said Turner.
Founded in 2010, the industry website, Crowdsourcing.org, is a neutral organization dedicated solely
to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. As one of the most influential and credible authorities in the crowdsourcing space,
Crowdsourcing.org is recognized worldwide for its intellectual capital, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
practice expertise and unbiased thought leadership.
