The Travel Tech Corner features an app called Microsoft Seeing AI. The app uses artificial intelligence to make sense of print & visual images by converting to audio. It can be used to read documents, travel brochures, restaurant menus and bills, as well as to read street signs and other text at tourist attractions. The currency feature identifies monetary notes, which is useful when travelling in a foreign country. A number of other features make travelling easier for people who are blind or visually impaired.

Credits read by André du Toi, the Big Positive Guy.
