Your purchase includes free training with us to help you learn how to use the device with confidence.  At the outset, we’ll help you personalize your device settings, including the device language and reading speed.  If you prefer a separate audio output, such as Bluetooth earbuds, speaker, or compatible hearing aids, we’ll help you get connected.  We’ll also discuss your goals for using the device.

As you move through training, we’ll get you started on the device and provide opportunity for guided practice sessions.  Some people may use these sessions for practicing voice commands, for example, or practicing reading.  You’ll be able to hone your skills until you are confidently using the device to meet your goals.

Training sessions are typically done via Zoom, scheduled at a time that is convenient for you.  Most people find that one or two hour-long training sessions are sufficient, though more sessions are possible depending on your needs.  Some people find it helpful to invite a friend or family member to join the session so that they can continue practicing together at home.


We want you to enjoy long-term success with your OrCam.  That’s why we provide ongoing tech support for any issues or questions that may come up.  Additionally, from time-to-time, OrCam may release software updates for their products.  We are here to help you update your device so you can continue to take full advantage of all its benefits.

For warranty-related support, we’ll contact the manufacturer on your behalf, ensuring that you get the help you need as quickly and efficiently as possible.
