I was just wondering if anyone has some great apps for the IPad and/or Android devices for visually impairments. I work with several students who have some type of visual impairment. Just wondering what apps others have found. I have students with IPads and Android devices so I work with both. I know one of my teachers I work with found an app where the student places money under the camera and it reads the type of bill it is. Just looking for some ideas.

Our visual impaired students use Noteability. The teacher emails all assignments to them. The student transfers the worksheet to noteability and can write in the blanks. The student then emails it back to the teacher. Our braille user doesn't use that app, though.
