Empowering People Who Are Visually Impaired or Have Reading Difficulties
The first-of-its-kind handheld reader for people with dyslexia or reading difficulties.
ORCAM creates assistive AI devices that change lives.
Using AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning to develop an accessibility enhancing product, the handheld OrCam Read device can help people with reading difficulties such as dyslexia or reading fatigue. When you point the device at a block of text and hit a button, it'll send out a laser beam highlighting the selected text and start reading a page or section out loud.
OrCam’s mission is to harness the power of artificial vision by incorporating pioneering technology into a portable platform which improves the lives of individuals who are visually impaired and/or have reading difficulties.
