OrCam Now Operates with Voice Commands

OrCam’s Revolutionary Assistive Technology Now Operates Completely Hands-Free with Voice Commands

OrCam technologies, a global leader in personal, AI-driven assistive tech innovations, today announced the release of new software Version 9.10. The update, which is seamlessly downloaded on the wearable OrCam MyEye (for blind and visually impaired people) and handheld OrCam Read (for people with reading challenges) devices, empowers users in education and workplace settings – as well as in the performance of daily activities – resulting in increased independence and self-reliance.

The launch of “Hey OrCam” signifies the company’s dedication to transform the OrCam solutions into AI-driven “personal assistants” – which accompany the user throughout their day – as well as brings the assistive technology on par with existing consumer technologies that are voice-activated.

Version 9.10 includes new functionality that significantly improves the OrCam experience – and delivers a higher degree of accessibility – by allowing the device user to activate and control all features and settings hands-free, using voice commands. OrCam MyEye and OrCam Read users simply speak “Hey OrCam” followed by their desired action (voice command), and the device performs accordingly.

Version 9.10 also includes precise Table Reading capabilities – the first assistive tech to offer this highly accurate functionality – making information from restaurant menus, utility bills, nutritional information on products, and spreadsheets easily accessible.
