The world's most advanced solution for information access comes to Perth



READING FOR ALL FREE EXPO
The world's most advanced solution for information access
 
Accessing all the information we are presented with each day is becoming increasingly challenging for people with a vision or reading disability. Quantum RLV and Vision Australia will present the latest technology for people with low vision and blindness at a free seminar to be held in Perth on Monday November 12th 2018, during Seniors Week.
 
Mr Leon Paull from OrCam Israel will introduce the enhanced OrCam MyEye and will offer a peek into the future of this exciting technology. OrCam MyEye is the most advanced wearable device in the world that can assist anyone who struggles to read due to blindness, vision impairment, dyslexia or acquired brain injury; just point and it reads to you.
 
Attendees will include people with vision loss, blindness, students and adults with dyslexia, educators and disability employment agencies
 
 Sybil Smith who is in her 80’s  has been using OrCam for several years and is keen to meet with Leon Paull to experience the  latest OrCam features which include facial recognition, bar code and product recognition and much more.
 
OrCam Australian distributor, Quantum CEO Tim Connell said “About one in seven Australians (1.25 million people) has some evidence of macular degeneration and this number will increase to 1.7 million by 2030, in the absence of effective prevention and treatment measures. It is important that anyone with impaired vision or is blind, has reading or learning difficulties to seek help early to maintain their independence and reduce the risk of accidents. Distance is often a deterrent, which is why Quantum and Vision Australia are pleased to bring this roadshow to Perth”
