Instantly reads any printed or digital text out loud to you. It is the most sophisticated and efficient reading device available for people with low vision, dyslexia or other reading difficulties.

The first of its kind handheld reader for people with low vision, dyslexia, reading fatigue or other difficulties. 

The OrCam Read Smart includes a new feature, Smart Reading. It allows you to simply ask for the text that interests you: “Read the headlines”, “Read amounts”, or “Start from” a specific section (like “desserts” in a menu).

OrCam Read can be used in any environment, including low-light, and without requiring any internet connectivity. The device can be easily used to read any kind of printed or digital text, at home, in the office, or on the go.

  • Simple to use with just 4 tactile controls
  • Read by pointing the OrCam Read towards any text and pressing a button
  • Unique laser targeting indicator

The OrCam Read Smart comes with English, French and German languages as standard, additional available languages are: Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch.

Special order devices are needed for other languages.

1) Pointer: Locate the red arrow just below the text you want to read. Allows you to start reading from a specific sentence in your document (rather than having to listen to the entire text)

2) Area: A red rectangle allows low vision users to accurately frame an area of text to read (e.g. a document or a particular paragraph in a newspaper)

  • OrCam Read works on both printed and on-screen text (e.g. PC or laptop screen, iPad, mobile phone screen etc.)
  • Allows for distance reading of signs, shop names, train and airline information screens, notice boards etc. 
  • Simple to use voice commands
  • OrCam Read requires the user to be able to hear, with or without hearing aids

The product is awesome, friends and family cannot believe it reads and speaks so fast, it’s amazing, now my wife can scan pages from a book and sit back and listen. We are going a little at a time to fully get to know the commands which I have printed off and are kept handy for my wife to use. Thank you once again for the exemplary service from yourself and Visionaid.
