About the OrCam Read 3

With just a simple press of a button, the OrCam Read 3 activates a laser that indicates where to start reading, both on printed texts and screens.

OrCam Read 3 instantly converts any type of text to audio and then plays it through the device’s compact speaker or on a paired Bluetooth device.

The versatile device offers two convenient reading options. The red frame allows you to select the full text, similar to an entire A4 page. The pointer allows you to select specific pages or blocks of text to be read aloud. Thus, OrCam Read 3 combines ease of use with flexibility, making it a handy companion for various reading needs.

The device can also be used with an additional stand, making alignment with a document easier.

Now Includes Money detection and Barcode recognition features FREE.

  • Can the OrCam Read be connected to hearing Aids?

    OrCam (version 9.3 or newer) supports wireless streaming to Starkey Livio Edge AI hearing aids. To pair with Starkey hearing aids, follow the normal protocol for Bluetooth pairing with the OrCam device. Starkey hearing aids’ pairing mode is activated simply by powering the hearing aids off and then on. This triggers the pairing mode for 2 to 3 minutes. Note that the OrCam device cannot be connected to the mobile-app while connected to Starkey hearing aids. In addition, the OrCam can also be paired directly with Phonak Audéo Marvel hearing aids. Currently we do not support direct streaming on additional devices. It may be possible, however, to connect to Bluetooth hearing aids using an extra proprietary device you wear as a necklace (Bluetooth streamer). It is recommended to consult with a professional audiologist and confirm compatibility before purchasing a streamer for this matter. If you have any further questions about compatibility with your hearing aids, please feel free to contact us.
