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

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
