OrCam Learn - Your Reading Assistant for Dyslexia Awareness Month 2023

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month. It has been observed every year to raise awareness of reading difficulties and provide support for people with dyslexia in the United States and all around the world. According to the European Dyslexia Association, 12% of the population is facing dyslexia and other kinds of reading difficulties. In another poll by the Nitzan Association, 43.1% of citizens are familiar with someone who has dyslexia. 


In other words, almost one in two people knows someone who has a friend or family member who struggles with reading difficulties on a regular basis. Problems such as acquisition and establishment of reading may affect all areas of learning and academic performance. Not only that, but reading difficulties may also affect socialization, communication, and self-esteem.

Dyslexia Awareness Month 2023: Why It Matters

Dyslexia is a learning disability that affects millions of people around the world. It can make reading and writing difficult, leading to academic and social challenges. Dyslexia Awareness Month, which is observed every October, aims to raise awareness about dyslexia and promote understanding and acceptance for individuals with dyslexia.


At OrCam, we understand the challenges faced by individuals with dyslexia, which is why we have developed OrCam Learn, a reading assistant device that can help individuals with dyslexia read more easily and comfortably.


As Dyslexia Awareness Month 2023 approaches, we encourage everyone to learn more about dyslexia and the resources available to support individuals with dyslexia. Together, we can create a more inclusive and supportive world for individuals with dyslexia.



Dyslexia Awareness Month To Celebrate Worldwide

Different ways to commemorate this month exist, and there are various symbols available to raise awareness. If you struggle with a reading challenge, you should not be embarrassed and can inform others about it proudly. Tell them that many individuals have dyslexia or other reading problems, and how it shapes your life. 

People with dyslexia are more creative researchers say, as a result of their unique way of thinking. A number of well-known musicians, actors, authors, and entrepreneurs, are dyslexic. You can see some of their names here. You may share this article on your social media profiles to raise awareness and tolerance.

OrCam Learn Changes the Rules of Reading


OrCam has developed a unique device called OrCam Learn in recent years, which will for the first time help people with dyslexia and individuals with reading difficulties, reading fatigue, and learning disabilities.


OrCam Learn opens a new way to approach reading assistance devices. This is the first digital reading gadget of its kind that makes use of artificial intelligence algorithms, which can read digital text or printed numbers from a laptop, smartphone, or any printed text, without requiring a connection to the internet or the cloud. The technology is flexible, portable, and simple to operate, making the lives of individuals with reading difficulties much easier.


Now you can speak with your reading assistant and give verbal commands to accomplish. You do not need to waste your energy and time to read texts anymore. OrCam Learn has advanced features that allow you to enjoy your reading while drinking your coffee or tea anywhere.

Ask The Device To Read Exactly What You Want

The algorithms allow you to choose between two precise reading options: reading all the highlighted text (up to a whole page) or marking the point where you intend to begin reading. You may alter the reading speed, volume, reading language, and even the announcer within the book.
