What is Aira?
Aira is a live and on-demand visual interpretation service for people who are blind or with low vision. You can download and start using it straight away on your smart device!
How does it work?
Aira connects people who are blind or have low vision to specially trained agents to help them in their day to day lives by using assistive technology to describe the world around them. Aira agents and the Artificial Intelligence (AI) assistant can describe obstacles, scenes and situations in the immediate vicinity of a caller. You can use your smartphone or the patented Aira wearable glasses to connect to an agent or the AI assistant.
Calls to help with short and simple tasks, i.e. calls that are less than 5 minutes in duration, are free. Paid subscription options give you access to a quota of minutes per month, ranging between 30 and 300 minutes. These minutes would be required to get help with more complex or longer tasks.
Aira agents can help you identify and locate items on your local supermarket shelf, or tell you how much something costs. They can help you navigate to a free table in a busy coffee shop, or guide you to your bus stop. The possible applications for this hybrid assistive technology and support service are endless, especially in Education, Employment and Daily Living.
