For the visually impaired, simple tasks like reading a menu at a restaurant can be difficult, so much so that people are often forced to rely on others to help out.But a Saskatchewan man is one of the first Canadians to try a new approach."It's opened up a whole new world for me," said Connor StandingReady.
What's opened up that world is something called the OrCam. It's a camera attached to a set of glasses. There's also a pocket-sized computer and an earpiece.It sounds simple but the OrCam reads, and then sends the audio to the person who is wearing the device
"It helps with my day-to-day activities," said StandingReady. "It was kind of mind-blowing, actually."
