DELIVERED WITH OrCam Read USB Adapter USB cable RECOMMENDATIONS CONCLUSIONS OF THE CERTAM EVALUATION OF FEBRUARY 11, 2021 The OrCam Read, a copy of which was given to us by Acces’Solutions for our tests, is a character recognition device initially designed for dyslexic people. It can be used by visually impaired people, but it is aimed at people who can visually locate the text to be read. Considering the existence of accessible, efficient and much less expensive mobile applications, even free, the interest of this solution seems limited and expensive for people already equipped with a smartphone. For the less tech-savvy, and especially when a magnification device is no longer sufficient, the portability and autonomy of the OrCam Read will certainly be able to satisfy occasional reading needs.
