Also a great time go over troubleshooting and known issues. Class Curriculum: How do I open the Cyber Eyez menu to select the Reading Assistant I want? Long press #1 to bring up the menu. Reading Assistant is the first option. It has a sub-menu, so short press #3 to open the sub-menu. The first option is Cyber Eyez Offline mode. Short press #1 to scroll down to Microsoft Online mode or Back to go back to the main menu. Short press #3 to select either Cyber Eyez Offline mode or Microsoft Online mode. What are differences between each Reading Assistant modes? Cyber Eyez Offline Text Reader does not require any internet connection to read text. It is can read text in over 160 languages. Microsoft Online is the same OCR engine used by long text mode in Seeing AI from Microsoft. It recognizes text at multiple angles (even upside down), but sometimes struggles if there are headlines and smaller print text in the same image. How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture letters? The best way to read with any wearable is to use a book easel. This are inexpensive devices that hold documents, books and magazines still and even have clips to hold the pages in place while you read. If you don’t have an easel, hold the document in your left hand and snap a picture with a short press of #3. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad or short press #1 or #2. How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture a book? Books really work best with an easel, but can be done in your hand or on a table as well. Hold the book open so both pages can be seen by the camera lense if possible. If both pages can not be seen, try to capture one page without the other. A piece of paper comes in handy to cover the other page if the book or magazine is too large to do one page at a time. Once you’ve got text in the frame, short press #3 to take a picture. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad or short press #1 or #2. How do I use the Reading Assistant to capture receipts? Hold the receipt fairly close to the device (about 18-20 inches) to block out any surrounding “white noise” since receipt text can be fairly light. Once you’ve got the receipt in the frame, short press #3 to take a picture. You will hear a camera shutter “click” sound when it takes the picture. Wait a few seconds and the text will begin to be read back. To stop the voice, swipe forward or backward on the swipe pad or short press #1 or #2. Spend time working with the zoom feature and how it works with the OCR features. Zoom in on one paragraph and take a picture. On bills, zoom in on the amount due and have just that read back. Zoom and OCR are a powerful combination to cut down the amount of text being read back and to get just the text you want. Q & A Also a great time go over troubleshooting and known issues.
