Need a pair of sharp eyes? Or have some sight to lend? Be My Eyes is a simple free tool to see the world better together.
Be My Eyes connects you with a global community of volunteers and company representatives who are ready at a moment’s notice to help you see – to lend their eyesight and support with everyday tasks.
FREE. GLOBAL. 24/7.
Be My Eyes is a multi-lingual support community millions strong available globally day or night and has volunteers answering calls in more than 185 languages. Join the community today!
Sign up to get free visual support with tasks like reading small print matching clothes troubleshooting technology setting up home appliances or any other simple task a volunteer can complete over live video. If a task is too complicated or requires expertise call one of our company partners for on-demand video customer support via Specialized Help.
If you have eyesight you want to share sign up as a volunteer and answer calls from a person in need! Tasks are usually completed in just a few minutes and if you’re busy there’s no need to answer – someone else will get it.
HOW IT WORKS
1. Anyone 17 or older may sign up as a user or volunteer.
2. Calls are connected based on daytime timezone and language. Average wait time is about 15 seconds.
3. When a call is answered a live one-way video (two-way audio) is initiated allowing volunteers or company reps to see what’s in front of the user’s camera and provide verbal support.
Note Specialized Help availability varies by region and company opening hours.
