Hi,

I doubt it, because no glasses can tell you which item is selected.  They
will just read the screen as a complete block.

All the best

Steve

Subject: [BCAB] Orcam in games

I'm wondering if anyone on this list has used an Orcam with computers? For
anyone who doesn't know, it's a long thin camera that clips onto the arm of
a pair of glasses. It has Artificial Intelligence to describe not only text,
but some objects too.

There's a video of it in action here

.

I'm curious if it might benefit people navigate game menus, where there is
not text to speech option, such as in many game console games, and many iPad
games.

Cheers,

Barrie
