What makes the OrCam Read Extra Special; a brand new reading solution from OrCam

From the creators of the popular OrCam wearable reading devices (MyEye 2 and MyReader 2), comes the world’s first handheld full-page reading device.

We’ve been testing the device for the last couple of weeks in our VisionAid houses and we want to share with you some of the features that we think make it extra special!

All Other Reading Devices Read Line By Line…

You may have heard of other reading pens like the C-Pen. They are great to use for short amounts of text but did you know that they can only read text line by line? As OrCam highlight, 'You have to hold the pen and manually move it over the text from left to right to scan each word in the sentence. This can cause a reader to lose context, as words are read slowly and sentences are read in fragments'.

In contrast, the OrCam Read can scan an entire page of text at the click of a button. This sophisticated reading device reads back the text to you instantaneously, with no pause or delay and therefore you don't lose any comprehension. OrCam Read pointed at a cake box recipe.

It Is Light and Completely Wireless...

While other portable reading devices may require a USB connection or some sort of wire, OrCam Read is handheld, wireless, and lightweight. Weighing under 50 grams, the OrCam Read is easy to take with you wherever you go – from the library to the train to the office and everywhere in between. It can be used in low-light environments such as in a dimly lit restaurant to read your menu.

It Requires No Internet Connection

The OrCam Read does not require an internet connection, so you can use it wherever you are.
