The vision impaired app, trialled by Telstra employee Kelly Schultz, uses Image Searcher's TapTapSee technology to identify the object that the user is looking at. For example, it can distinguish between regular and minted frozen peas, baked beans in tomato or BBQ sauce, and the male and female symbols on toilet doors.
"To be able to identify objects, to be connected to the world and have it all private in your ear. Fantastic," said Ms Schultz.
The transcription can come from a human typist or speech recognition software.
"I used to struggle in environments where there were multiple people in a room," said Mr Miller.
"But rather than having to constantly look at my laptop now I can simply walk in and engage like the rest of the participants, it's really exciting."
b2cloud managing director Josh Guest said "Telstra is taking a smart approach by experimenting with the technology early, building prototypes and getting them in the hands of a select target user group for real world testing.
"When Google Glass is made more widely available, then Telstra will already have a strong understanding of the capabilities of this technology."
b2cloud is working with other Australian corporations on the development of Google Glass apps, but the Telstra projects are among the first to be made public.
