Persons with vision loss face challenging situations daily, especially when they need to travel, do certain tasks by following instructions or getting information for themselves. They may find this product and service called Aira to be very helpful. Aira consists of smart glasses with a camera which is connected to the user’s smartphone. Then a remote, trained vision interpreter assists persons with visual impairments. A vision interpreter can get instant feedback from the camera and describe whatever is in front of the user or provide detailed information such as instruction manuals for the user. However, Aira is not designed to make decisions. For example, when a blind person reaches at a traffic intersection, Aira can provide the user with the information on if the traffic light is green and no cars are coming, but it is up for the user to make a decision of when to cross the road.
We often find it is difficult to offer additional support on how to use assistive technology devices after providing a technology solution. This is one technology product combined with service developed for persons with special needs. They offer subscription services with a 3-month intro price starting from $89 for 200 min and higher. More information and pricing can be found at: https://aira.io/plans.
