OCR – I See You!


Free & Open to the Public with Reservation.
Two sessions: 1-2:30 pm or 6-7:30 pm.
Call 646-312-1420 to RSVP today!



Have you ever been in a situation where you were handed a piece of paper and then wondered, “Now, what am I supposed to do with this?” Whether it is a handout in the classroom or a menu in a restaurant, blind people are often left in the dark while their sighted cohorts review material at their leisure. In this session, we’ll demonstrate some of the latest in portable OCR (Optical Character Recognition).

This technology takes pictures of printed material and then reads it aloud to you! We’ll be showcasing some of the latest devices and apps that give us access to the printed word, wherever we might be.

Watch a live stream of our early session (1:00-2:30) at: www.ustream.tv/channel/ccvipdemo.
