If you or a loved one struggles with visual impairment, you’ll be pleased to know there’s technology that can help. Using the power of AI and AR, personal gadgets that focus on assistive functionality are here and available to buy today. Join us as we look at one of these useful devices and explore how it’s helping solve problems. Read on to learn more.
Life is hard for people who are fortunate enough not to have any impairments. It’s far more difficult for those who are. Thankfully, using the power of artificial intelligence, Envision Glasses have arrived to assist those who are visually impaired as they navigate their daily routines. Today we’re digging into what they are and how they help those who need them. Let’s get started, shall we?
Envision Glasses have the power to improve daily activities
Scans text and makes it easier to read or understand
Right away, one of how assistive Envision Glasses can make life better for the visually impaired is by making text readable. The device lets you scan text to make it clearer to read. Not only that, it can even read text aloud, making it easier to understand. “Batch Scan” lets you read larger amounts of text, like books, for example.
It’s easy for most people to take reading for granted—after all, labels, instructions, street signs, and so many other objects we rely on all use text. A tool like this can make all the difference.

Describes the environment so that you’re more aware
Another handy feature Envision Glasses offer is its ability to scan and interpret your environment. Using a feature called “Scene Description,” it can let you know what it sees around you, keeping you more informed. Taking a walk through the park? All you need to do is listen to the description.
Detects important things, like faces, objects, and colors
If you or your loved one has trouble deciphering faces or colors, assistive Envision Glasses can help with that too. They include facial recognition and object recognition, plus color detection. This can improve social situations or even activities like sorting laundry and picking out clothing. All very important functions in maintaining an independent daily routine.
The Glasses can describe surrounding environments
Includes all the hardware necessary to perform effectively
It’s important to also touch on what allows Envision Glasses to perform their assistive tasks effectively: the hardware. For example, the device features an 8-MP camera and a wide field of view (FOV). Its battery charges via USB-C and can run up to 6 hours with standard use. There’s a directional mono speaker with USB and Bluetooth audio. Speaking of Bluetooth, the glasses include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. Lastly, the device is lightweight and water and dust-resistant.
The device makes it easier to read text
Since every person is uniquely different, it’s difficult to say whether the assistive Envision Glasses are worth their cost for everyone. For example, each person’s visual impairment and the extent of their needs will vary, limiting the device’s usefulness on an individual basis. That said, there’s a lot of great stuff here that can absolutely help those who need an assistive boost.
