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 hello@blindguytalkstech.com or call our voice message number on 0204 571 3354.
