Starkey and OrCam Partner to Provide Assistance for Hearing and Visually Impaired People

Cool collaboration to help deaf / blind … If I understand correctly, the camera is able to use computer vision to understand the world around the blind wearer, and provide an audio explanation. Now the trouble comes when the wearer also has a hearing loss and cannot hear the audio explanations… Now, this is where Starkey comes in, to make those explanations audible to the wearer (wireless audio streaming from orcam and amplification via starkey). I know this is a niche group, but I’m glad to see these two companies innovating to provide this cool tech solution for them.
