Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Aug 12, 2022

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools, and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!

There are thousands of different types of plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs found throughout the world.  Did you know there’s an app you can download to help identify over 10,000 different types of plants?  Check out PictureThis!

PictureThis Plant Identifier allows users to take pictures of real plants and flowers and submit them for identification.  In addition to identifying plants, users can also learn facts and care information for plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs.

With PictureThis you can:

  • Identify plants, flowers, and trees instantly with an artificial intelligence-driven plant identification system
  • Diagnose plant problems automatically and get treatment suggestions
  • Get advice from botanists in one-on-one conversations
  • Use our plant guides to help you choose and grow beautiful, healthy plants
  • Keep notes, get reminders, and record the growth of your plants, trees, and flowers
  • Take better photographs with the “easy-to-use” interface
