  1. It's very exciting to see technology helping partially sighted people achieve greater independence. Similar to the mentioned technology for the blind, an Israeli startup develops an artificial vision camera that reads text from any surface instantly. Thanks to this artificial vision camera for visual disability, people who are blind or visually impaired can read on their own again.
