About this deal

Unfortunately, several sighted people in my community were under the impression that I was testing a device that actually allowed me to see. It’s a reading pen that does not require an internet connection, so you can read offline at home, work, school, running errands or wherever the day takes you. Sure, there are some things you need to do a little differently now, but the point is, you're someone who's still able to do those things. To learn a face, you hold down on the touch bar while the subject of interest turns their face slowly one direction, and then the other. The OrCam MyEye is the only wearable assistive technology device that is activated by an intuitive pointing gesture.

Users have the option to read the text themselves or have the text read to them—all at their own pace. The developers of OrCam have built their own, proprietary text recognition engine from the ground up. You recieve an alert if there is not enough light to process text, meaning it could be difficult in low-light situations. Low vision users and industry professionals are impressed with OrCam Read’s accuracy and convenience factor.

There's nothing to assemble other than using two small cable ties to fasten a tiny mounting bracket to the arm of your glasses. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Yes, I could ask someone to go through them, but in the grand scheme of things it was never massively important. International products have separate terms, are sold from abroad and may differ from local products, including fit, age ratings, and language of product, labeling or instructions. MyEye PRO also includes a breakthrough new feature that helps orient users to their surroundings, announcing and providing directions toward objects that are between 6 and 30 feet away. To add an item to the device's memory, press and hold the Trigger button until OrCam prompts you with "Start new product learning. I was easily able to tell that one of the boxes was for me and one for my wife by simply touching the label with my fingertips, then moving my finger away for the picture to snap.In a recent AccessWorld article, Choice Finds from the ATIA 2016 Conference Exhibit Hall, we took a first look at the OrCam from Israeli-based OrCam Technologies. Much to my wife's consternation, I love gadgets, long before my vision loss, so am always on the look out now, for gadgets to aid me. Actual demonstrations of the device cleared up much of this confusion, although I constantly reminded people that I could not actually see anything through the glasses I was wearing.
