(Press Release) OrCam Technologies, artificial vision innovator for people who are blind or visually impaired, is collaborating with VisionServe Alliance, headquartered in St. Louis, MO, a consortium of executive directors/CEOs of non-profit agencies that provide specialized services to people who are blind or with severe vision loss, to bring the latest wearable assistive technology to VSA member organizations.
These two organizations will promote OrCam MyEye, a wearable assistive technology device, to VSA members that include organizations focusing on national advocacy, service issues, employment and manufacturing, adult vision rehabilitation, early intervention, schools, dog guides, low vision clinics and Braille production.
“OrCam is honoured to partner with the VisionServe Alliance consortium of non-profits throughout the United States which provides vital support services to people who are blind and visually impaired,” said Elad Serfaty, OrCam senior vice president. “This collaboration allows OrCam to engage the VSA's members and their communities about the independence-giving OrCam MyEye artificial vision device. OrCam deeply shares the VSA's commitment to 'enrich the lives of those living with vision loss.'”
The OrCam MyEye artificial vision device instantly and discreetly reads printed and digital text aloud – from any surface – and recognizes faces, products and money notes. The wearable device communicates visual information by utilizing a small, intuitive smart camera mounted on the wearer’s eyeglass frame, which connects to a smartphone-sized computer.
OrCam MyEye is the only wearable assistive tech that relays audio in real time through an intuitive pointing gesture – without the need of a smartphone or Wi-Fi. OrCam MyEye makes newspapers, books, computer and smartphone screens, restaurant menus, labels on supermarket products and street signs accessible – in real time.
