Aira and Envision Glasses – a Force Multiplier for ‘Aira Everywhere’

Hands-free is now a choice. Try the Early Access Release. 

An often heard request from Explorers is to operate hands-free while engaging with an Aira Agent, second only to ‘don’t take away access to Aira, it’s so valuable to me.’  This independence and autonomy is well understood by members of our Explorer community. And while all tasks are entirely possible while holding a phone, some would be even easier and more efficient with the option to use both hands for the task itself.

Things are About to Change

Until now, Aira users relied solely on chest harnesses to mount their mobile device when they sought a hands-free experience.  Now, the integration between Aira and the Envision Glasses provides a superior hands-free experience allowing individuals to place an Aira call using only the Envision Glasses. With a head-mounted camera, the panning and pointing of the camera happens naturally, facing or moving one’s head toward what is of interest, providing the Agent with a unique perspective. Envision Glasses owners now have access to 24/7, human-to-human, professional visual interpreting for any task. This integration enables new levels of efficiency and ease of use to improve many popular experiences.

Announcing Early Access

Aira and Envision, each industry leaders in their respective spaces, are excited to introduce an Early Access release of Aira on the Envision Glasses. Partnering to bring the market-leading visual interpreting service to the most practical, widely-deployed smart glasses – with AI designed for people who are blind or have low vision – is a game changer. 

For people who wish to engage an Aira Agent with an easy-to-use, natural-looking smart glasses solution, your day has come! As a wearable, the low profile, subtle design of the Envision Glasses is far less obtrusive than holding one’s phone in what’s often viewed as a less than natural position. And for times when you are literally on the move, Aira and the Envision Glasses are a force multiplier; imagine being hands-free and inconspicuous at the same time.
