Show Notes

Imagine a blind person going into a restaurant, picking up the menu and perusing what is on offer without having to ask someone else to read it or get assistance from a member of staff?

That’s what the Orcam Read offers its users. It’s a small pen-like device around the size of a highlighter pen and uses a special camera and laser to examine text and reproduce the results in audio in seconds.

Today on the podcast Jason joins Steven Scott from the company VisionAid Technologies, a family-run business that sells a wide range of technology suitable for blind and partially sighted people. The team also offer excellent one-to-one support before you buy to ensure what you are buying is what you really need, and there is excellent aftercare as well.

Here’s a direct link to the Orcam Read page on the VisionAid website.

Jason demonstrates how the device works and how to get a trial for yourself. If you’ve got one let us know what you think or if you have any other comments for our show join the conversation by emailing or call our voice message number on 0204 571 3354.
