OrCam – Wearable Assistive Technology Solution For Vision

OrCam is the World’s Most Advanced Wearable Assistive Technology Solution for people who are blind, visually impaired, have dyslexia, aphasia or other conditions.

What is OrCam?

OrCam is an intuitive wearable device with a smart camera designed to assist people who are visually impaired.

Easy to Use 

All you have to do is point.  OrCam responds to simple gestures making it easy to use – whether it’s to read, find an item or recognize a face or product.  No need to search for audio books, learn new software or use other tools.

Read

The OrCam device can read printed text, in real time.  You can read newspapers and books, signs, labels on consumer products and even text on a computer or smartphone screen.  Perfect for use at home and on the go.

Identify People

The OrCam device identifies known faces.  No more guessing – previously stored faces are identified and announced upon entering the camera’s view.  Less awkward situations, more control of your environment.

Recognize your personal items

Personalize your OrCam device by teaching it to recognize specific products around you.  Recognize previously entered consumer products, money notes and credit cards to make shopping and browsing quicker and easier.

 

A Personalized Experience

Each OrCam device is hand-delivered by a certified OrCam Trainer who will teach you how to use your new device. It arrives at your doorstep complete with all accessories included.
