    Microsoft's mission to help individuals and businesses to do more includes bridging the gap between the sighted and the blind.
    According to the world health organization there are about 253 million people living with some degree of visual impairment or blindness.
    Many of these people receive assistance in the form of a service animal, human aid or technological support. Honing their other senses to levels that may seem to approach super human abilities (to those of us with less acute senses) are another means people with blindness attempt to bridge the gap between themselves and the sighted.

    Microsoft and developers have seen the opportunity this dependency on other senses as a means to introduce technology as a bridge between the sighted and the blind. Through Microsoft's AI platform and Cognitive services other senses are "enhanced" to provide some of the benefits of sight.
