We at Blindness Support Services are dedicated to teaching those who are blind or have visual impairments to become more independent and adapt to the challenges they have.

We are having an OrCam Device Showcase on Friday, August 19th, from 10am to 12noon

We will have a demonstration of a couple OrCam devices. The OrCam MyEye Pro is a glasses mountable assistive technology which converts visual information into audio in real time. With the MyEye Pro you can read anything, books, menus, bank and credit card statements, emails or any text from any surface; enjoy an independent shopping experience, identify family, friends and more.
Additionally, The OrCam Read is a handheld device that converts text to audio in real time. This device provides access to text on any surface, be it a document on the table or a curved page in a book. Even scan full pages for conversion to a digital file format.

We will have hands on individual demo sessions available in the afternoon, after the presentation. We encourage all who can to attend in person and get a hands-on experience with these OrCam products and see how these could help you.
