Unleash your students' full potential.

Powered by globally-awarded AI technology, OrCam Learn is a game-changing solution that offers practical reading support and feedback to students, while empowering educators with data and analytics to better guide their students' academic journeys – so challenged readers can become independent readers, enjoy learning, and grow their confidence.

Students can now read any text independently.

To access any text, a student simply points & clicks for OrCam Learn to read a full printed page or screen out loud! Including from a book, tablet, or classroom handout.

Makes reading and learning flow for every student

With the “Reading Pal” feature, learners read any text to the device and receive conversational and encouraging responses. Then OrCam Learn assesses the child’s reading comprehension by asking content-related questions – and provides real-time feedback.
