New technology brings independence to the blind
OrCam Technologies, an artificial vision innovator for people who are vision impaired, blind or have a reading disability, has announced the introduction of the world’s most advanced wearable assistive technology solution according the company. The OrCam MyEye utilises a small camera mounted on the user’s eyeglass frame to instantly read any printed text in the immediate environment.
Via a discreet earpiece, the device can instantly read text from any source – including newspapers, books, computer screens, restaurant menus, and street signs – as well as recognise faces of individuals and identify products. Every OrCam MyEye device is hand-delivered by a certified OrCam Trainer who teaches each new user how to incorporate the device’s technology into daily life.
Rami Ben Yehuda, OrCam Senior Vice President of Sales and Operations said: “OrCam is passionately dedicated to providing independence through our unparalleled artificial vision technology.
“Whether it’s reading a morning newspaper, recognizing the approach of a loved one or choosing a favourite item in the supermarket, our mission is to improve quality of life.”
The device is available across multiple regions across the globe, including the United Kingdom.
