Using augmented reality, Aira connects people who are blind or partially sighted with a trained professional agent dedicated to further enhancing your everyday experience. It’s hands-free assistance after the touch of a button. 

The Aira app connects a blind user with a sighted agent who uses the phone's camera to assist with daily living tasks. These tasks can include: reading mail, identifying expiry dates on groceries, telling you information on products, and some aspects of independent travel, just to name a few. Join us by phone to learn more. The app will be demonstrated during the session. 

The group meets via teleconference on April 1 & April 2 from 3-4 p.m. Eastern Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.

Registration required. To register for this program, please contact Victoria Francis, Program Lead, Accessible Technology at 705-675-2468 x5410 or email
