EXCITING NEW TECHNOLOGY BRINGS HOPE TO AUSTRALIANS WITH LOW VISION AND BLINDNESS



We take our ability to read for granted and use this crucial skill a thousand times a day: reading, emails, documents, labels, door signs, smart phones, indicator boards…
But imagine if you could not read? How would you cope in the modern world?

Accessing all the information we are presented with each day is becoming increasingly challenging for people with low vision or blindness.

A free seminar in Mount Waverly introduces the latest technology developments to assist these Australians who find difficulty in reading because of sight issues and learning difficulties.

The seminar will include a low vision presentation followed by a display of the full range of low vision products and demonstrations, including OrCam 2.0, the world’s most advanced wearable assistive device. Wireless, lightweight and about the size of a finger, OrCam MyEye 2.0's breakthrough assistive technology instantly reads printed and digital text aloud: newspapers, books, restaurant menus, signs, product labels, computer and smartphone screens.

The instant face recognition improves social situations and the identification of consumer products, colors and money notes provides a refreshing level of independence.
