The Pros and Cons of Wearable Video and Audio Technologies for Vision Impairment
Wednesday, April 22, 2020

A question we often hear from people new to vision impairment is ‘Why can’t you just make me a pair of glasses?’ Wearable assistive technologies for vision impairment give us the potential to be able to answer this question, but do the results match the promises? In this webinar we will consider some of the wearable technologies available today such as eSight 3, IrisVision, Orcam and Vision Buddy, and where they offer potential benefits and potential problems.

Objectives

  1. • Learn about the current types of wearable technology
  2. Discuss what tasks they might be appropriate for
