Thank you for installing TapTapSee. Before you begin using the application, you must first turn VoiceOver ON in your device. To turn VoiceOver ON go to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver. Then change the switch to ON. When you first open TapTapSee a Privacy Notice pops up that needs to be accepted for you to use the app. Once it's accepted you're taken into the app, which consists of a camera and four buttons at the top of the screen - Repeat, Library, Share and About. To take a picture simply double tap on the screen and wait for the identification to come back to you. This will take seven to 10 seconds, depending on your network connection. The image gets sent out to our server where it is processed and then given a tag that is sent back to the user's device. The VoiceOver in the device speaks the identification back to the user. The Repeat button was devised in case the identification was missed by the user. The Library button allows the user to access the device's Camera Roll in order to send images to TapTapSee for identification. To access this feature simply click on the Library Button and then proceed to select an image that you want to have identified from the Camera Roll (Note: If access to the Camera Roll is denied then the Privacy Settings must be changed on the device). The Share button gives the user the ability to Share the image via Email, Twitter or Facebook. The Share button also includes the option for the user to save the image to the device's Camera Roll. TapTapSee gives users a general identification of the images. However, if for example, the user takes a picture of a can of soup and wants to know the name of the brand, the application will be able to read the label and return the identification with the brand name. Nevertheless, keep in mind that TapTapSee will only be able to recognize the objects that are within the camera's scope. Sometimes it take a bit of playing around with TapTapSee to get the desired identification. TapTapSee also has a Focus notification sound that can be turned ON and OFF as desired. Once an object comes into focus, the app makes a sound to notify the user that it's in the optimal position to take a photograph. TapTapSee gives the user the ability to take up to three images at a time to be identified.
