A Portable Device That Augments Your Vision Using OCR Technology

The OrCam is an intuitive portable OCR (Optical Character Recognition) device that mounts onto the frames of your eyeglasses. OrCam recognizes text, products and faces, and speaks to you through a mini earpiece. The OrCam device responds to a simple intuitive gesture – a point of your finger or the press of a single button. Whether it’s to read, find an item or recognize a product, it responds instantly.

The LightHouse will host an introduction to this new OCR device at the Ed Roberts Campus in September.

When: Tuesday, September 22 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Where: LightHouse at the Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline, Berkeley (above Ashby BART station)

Read about the OrCam.

Anat Nulman, the representative of the OrCam, will provide a hands-on demonstration of this new OCR device which supports reading through use of OCR technology and touch gestures. It is portable, wearable and ‘on demand.’
