HONOR ‘PocketVision’ - A New AI-Powered App To Empower Visually Impaired

PocketVision harnesses the power of AI and quad camera technology to help the visually impaired read day to day documents, menus and other text with ease

HONOR, the global smartphone e-brand today announced the launch of PocketVision, an AI powered app that makes it easier for the visually impaired and people with low vision to read. PocketVision uses the power of HONOR’s AI (artificial intelligence) and superior quad camera technology to deliver an enhanced reading experience for people all around the world, which makes it portable and affordable alternative than other magnifiers and typoscopes currently available in the market.

Developed by social company Eyecoming and pioneered by HONOR’s cutting-edge technologies, PocketVision features three key modes to help people read more clearly.

· Text-to-Speech Mode; powered by HONOR HiAI and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, this mode helps to convert pictures to text faster and more accurately. It then narrates the text from books, documents, menus and more with ease

· Zoom-In Mode; leverages the quad camera lens and telephoto lens for ultra-clarity in HONOR smartphones, this mode allows users to zoom into text using the volume buttons on their device, making even the smallest type larger, less blurry and more legible

· Negative Image Mode; provides a range of colour filters to enhance text, this mode improves the contrast of printed materials for people who struggle to see certain colours

According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that approximately 1.3 billion people live with some form visual impairment. To help raise awareness of the barriers blind and partially sighted people face, HONOR has partnered with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) which supports people with vision impairment.

While PocketVision can be downloaded on all HONOR smartphones, it works seamlessly on HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 Pro smartphones, which has AI-powered camera and superior quad camera technology. 

The application can be downloaded for free from today on the Huawei App Gallery and supports English, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Italian and Chinese language. To find out more about PocketVision, please visit HONOR’s official website.
