OrCam MyEye Pro is all about using technology to help people who are blind, partially sighted, and have reading difficulties to achieve increased independence. OrCam MyEye PRO brings two very useful capabilities to those living with a vision impairment.
Firstly, Smart Reading, giving the ability to navigate around a page by telling MyEye PRO what you want to read using a range of voice commands. For example, you may have a magazine and you would like to know what headlines are on the page, all you have to say is “read me the headlines”. After you‘ve heard what headlines are seen on the page, you can then say “read the second article” for example, and OrCam MyEye PRO will read that story. Other items you can have OrCam MyEye PRO read to you are specific words, phone numbers, amounts and dates.
Secondly, Orientation, which is designed to orient yourself in your immediate environment by giving you audible feedback on specific items that are in front of you. OrCam MyEye PRO will tell you if it sees everyday objects such as cups, chairs, tables, screens and doors within the range of 1.5 to 9 metres in front of you, including a guide to the direction to the left or right of the user. Orientation is in the first stage of development and its capability will grow as new items are introduced, growing OrCam MyEye PRO to become a valuable tool to assist and confirm what other orientation and mobility skills already provide (note: OrCam MyEye PRO Orientation feature will never replace good orientation and mobility skills nor a Guide Dog).
