Case Study – Helping the Blind to read

Application from the Gentleman’s Carer

We recently received a request from a Carer to finance a 2nd hand Orcam Reader for a man who is registered as blind, on benefits & lives in Ashford. This equipment allows a blind person to read.

This is the letter that we received from the recipient:

“I would like to thank you and your charity for the donation which allowed me to purchase the Orcam camera and software which allows me to read. I have been blind for sometime and the system allows me to communicate with various media.The pictures enclosed show the apparatus and my use of the system to read a book, and this has allowed me to open and read letters, newspapers and books in daily use now.
This technology has enhanced my whole lifestyle and life in general
God bless you all”
