        I had stroke ten years when was 48 years. I was left with condition aphasia( language difficults). I came a cross this app. I was very pressed with. Due to stoke my reading is very slow. I never finish the daily newspaper and find it difficulty to finish a book.
        My phone and tablets are used throught android. If this
        App was available on android it would help my daily live.

        I noticed a few posts on Mirosoft forums that they working on android for this app.This was mentioned in 2017 and 2018. What's the timeline for the app been available on android. Thank.

        They need to pass a law that states that products that provide accessibility should be made for all platforms at the same time instead of first releasing to Apple first and letting everybody else fall behind while Apple users enjoy great access with these apps. It is always the situation when something for accessibility is released for Apple that for Android, it is always said that it is coming soon, but soon for the most part never really happens. It ends up being many many months.

        An initiative needs to be put into place where apps are being developed for all platforms at the same time and released at the same time to be fare to those that do not have Apple devices.

        I'm 62 years old and won a scholarship to study Horticulture, a life long dream, but I can not read some of my text books. Many do not come in ebook form. I could use the Seeing AI program but I have an android phone that is free provided to me by the government.

        Come on, Microsoft. If you can form an agreement or alliance with apple, you can do it with Google so that we can have the sun Android. I am mostly blind and I really need this app and I don't have my phone. And I shouldn't have to! Thanks. Ronda Del Boccio

        although there are many operating systems in this world, yet windows and android are the most commonly used by the blind or low vision persons. if seeing AI will be included in android platform then this app will have the highest users of other applications. we are eager to use this app on android devices as they are cheaper as compared to others and has the highest users in the world. hope to see this thank you very much.

        Hi microsoft is playing a great roll for the blind computer users. hope to experience seeing AI in android platform as most of the blind or visually impaired persons use android devices. seeing AIwill definately defeat other apps if it is included in android platform.

        My 89 year old mum has macular degeneration and this app is just what I am looking for to help her as her eyesight deteriorates further.
        Surely Microsoft is capable of producing a version for android , so why would you not do it ? Many people don't like Apple phones which are expensive, & difficult to work, let alone the fact that many people do not like Apple as a company, & it's in built exclusivity.

        I work in the field of accessibility and I work with the visually impaired on a daily basis. I do see more and more people with iDevices. Since I work in the field, I have both phones and from my experience, iOS is a little more accessible than Android, hence I can see why Microsoft unveiled their Seeing AI app on iOS first and it would be great if we could get an Android counterpart.

        Personally, I believe more VI people own android devices than I devices. waiting for Seeing AI to come to android!

        I too would like to see the Seeing AI app in the Android version for those with limited vision. My elderly mom has Macular Degeneration- Seeing AI app would be perfect for her except she had an android.
        Please work on developing this. We would be soooo grateful! And as the elderly portion of our population grows, along with vision changes, etc. both versions of Seeing AI would be very popular.
