They are all the same thing--different names. Try using AIRA during a professional exam and you'll quickly find out. 

By the way, BeMyEyes is the worst of these services because one has no idea what is at the other end of the phone call.

Facetime and Skype video do allow people to see you, but I am not sure that they are not allowed to fill out job applications. Those of us who are applying for jobs are required to complete each job application on our own. Services like Aira or Be My Eyes can be used to read the questions on a paper job application.

Besides we have be my eyes for finding out what color pile or socks go into when we’re doing laundry. And I mean this for totally blind and partials. We shouldn’t be replacing solid skills that work when technology doesn’t because when technology doesn’t work like it’s a lot more complicated. If you had the skill like braille you wouldn’t have to worry about your phone die because you have the real grocery list with you.
