PocketVision – HONOR’s new AI-powered App launched to empower the visually impaired

HONOR, On September 7th, had announced the launch of its 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 type scopes 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 color filters to enhance the text, this mode improves the contrast of printed materials for people who struggle to see certain colors

“At HONOR, we believe in the relentless pursuit of innovation; creating cutting edge technologies which make a positive impact on the world,” said George Zhao, President of HONOR. “Harnessing the power of the HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 PRO’s next-generation AI capabilities and pro-grade camera technology, PocketVision aims to level the playing field for the visually impaired, giving this community a portable, affordable solution to other reading aids available in the market. With the launch of this app, we hope to create an enhanced reading experience for people all around the world, enabling a greater sense of independence and giving people with low vision the confidence to unlock their potential and pursue their passions,” he added.

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 AppGallery and supports English, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Italian and Chinese language.
