Safety and Warnings

Before using the OrCam device, read these precautions carefully to avoid dangerous situations and to ensure ideal performance of your device.

  •  Handle your OrCam device with care. It can be damaged if dropped, burned, punctured, or crushed. Do not open the outer casing of the device.
  •  Check that there is no physical damage to your OrCam device such as any cracks or dents in the outer casing of the device. Do not open the outer casing of the device.
  •  Check that the camera lens of your OrCam device is not cracked, damaged, or scratched.
  •  Confirm that the camera lens is not covered or dirty. Read the cleaning instructions below on how to properly clean your OrCam device.
  •  There are three magnetic mounts provided in the box. Should one of them be broken, do not use it; use a different one.
  •  Use only the charger supplied with your OrCam device. Using another charger may void your warranty and could cause severe injury to you or damage to the OrCam device.
  •  Check that the wall charger and charging cable are not damaged or broken.
  •  Do not attempt to replace the battery; you may damage it, which could cause overheating and even injury. The battery is designed to last for two years of average use (one charging cycle per day on average) after which it may need to be replaced.
  •  The OrCam device is designed to work in ambient temperatures between 32⁰F and 104⁰F (0⁰C and 40⁰C) and
    in normal conditions (Relative Humidity of 10% to 90% RH and Atmospheric Pressure of up to 2000m above
    sea level (700hPa)). The device can be damaged if used outside of this range. Store and transport in a cool, dry place (32⁰F to 104⁰F (0⁰C to 40⁰C) and Relative Humidity of 5% to 90% and atmospheric pressure of 700hPa to 1060hPa)). If the OrCam device overheats, the OrCam device will perform its powering-off procedure.
  •  The OrCam device is water-resistant but not waterproof. This means the device can withstand light rain or drizzle for short periods of time, although it is not recommended. Do not use the OrCam device in heavy rain, at the beach, near a swimming pool, or in or near a bathtub or shower. Do not submerge the OrCam device in any liquid. The OrCam device meets the standards of IP Code: IP22.
  •  Do not force a connector into a port or apply excessive pressure to a button. This may cause damage that is not covered under the warranty. If a connector does not insert easily, check for obstructions in the port and verify that you have the correct connector for that port. Do not combine with software, hardware, or other equipment not supplied by OrCam. Exposing the device to magnetic fields may damage the unit or erase your data.
  •  When using the OrCam device or charging the battery, it is normal for the device to get warm. If the unit becomes excessively hot, leaks, or gives off a burning smell, turn the device off immediately and contact OrCam Support.
  •  If you experience any issues operating the OrCam device, or if the device or any of its components, such as the camera lens or outer casing or charger, becomes damaged or stops working, please contact OrCam Support and do not attempt to repair it by yourself. Only qualified OrCam personnel may repair or service your device. Unauthorized repairs may void your warranty.
  •  OrCam recommends that the user should stay away from background noise so as to better hear the OrCam device. OrCam recommends that the user use a Bluetooth audio device such as earphones to better hear the OrCam device in loud environments.
  •  If you have specific questions about use alongside an internal pacemaker and/or defibrillator and/or cochlear implant, please, please consult your medical professional.
  •  If you experience an allergic reaction to any of the elements of the OrCam device, contact a medical professional immediately.
  •  Do not use your OrCam device to read medication labeling.
  •  OrCam Read meets the standard requirements in the US and EU for Class 1 medical devices.

 General Tips.ORCAM Read First-of-its-Kind Artificial Intelligence Assistive Reader User Manual  & troubleshooting 19

  •  For best detection, ensure that the camera lens is directly facing the text or object with the long side of the device with all of the buttons facing upward, and the lens is not covered or dirty. The camera can only read text or recognize objects in its field of view.
  •  Make sure you do not move the texts or objects you would like OrCam Read to read or recognize while the device is taking a picture.
  •  Avoid taking pictures while walking or at moving texts or objects as the device may not read or recognize properly.
  • OrCam Read will inform you whether the text is upside down, the environmental lighting is too dark, or it is unable to read the text.
  •  If you attempt to perform a feature and OrCam Read responds with a short chime, then the device is informing you that no action has taken place.
  •  If you are having trouble keeping the text steady, a book holder is recommended.

Refund Policy.
You can return your undamaged device for a refund within the period required by local law or as agreed between
you and OrCam at the time of purchase. Training fees are non-refundable. Please contact your local representative or OrCam Support to initiate a return process. When you return the OrCam device, please follow OrCam Support instructions carefully. The device must be in the same condition that you received it and undamaged in any way.
