CamIO (short for “Camera Input-Output”) is a system to make physical objects (such as documents, maps, devices and 3D models) accessible to blind and visually impaired persons, by providing real-time audio feedback in response to the location on an object that the user is touching.

A four-year grant from NIH/NEI (R01EY025332) was received in March 2016 to fund CamIO!

See a presentation (pdf available here) of the latest CamIO research on March 3, 2017 at the CSUN Assistive Technology 2017 conference in San Diego.
