Welcome to our 6th annual Blind Bargains Holiday Shopping Guide. Once again, we've brought the deals straight to your audio feed. Sit back and relax as some of your favorite merchants, or perhaps some that are new to you, tell you about their latest products and services as well as some holiday deals. We'd like to sincerely thank all of the companies who were apart of this show. Below you'll find information about each company in the order they appear in the show.
We hope you have a socially-distanced, safe and fulfilling Thanksgiving weekend.

Ending the year with a boom at Envision

Working around the clock, led to a final boom at the end of 2020 where Envision can proudly present the Envision App as the best text recognition app on the market today and our Envision Glasses have officially hit the market.

Best text recognition app out there!

We have met all of our (and your) development milestones for 2020. You know us as a great recognition app, but we have put all of our powers together to create the best text recognition app out there. Let's start at the beginning.

We started 2020 with adding dynamic type support and the jump to page feature in document scanning. We then went on to many much-requested features like adding support for more file types like Word and ePub and topped it up with the library feature. This means you can import types of documents read them and save it within the Envision app itself.

We're rounding off the year with two more unique features - firstly column detection, so now newspapers, recipes and many more documents with columns are easy to read. And you can also translate entire documents to in over 50 different languages.

For everyone who has not had a chance to (re-)try Envision after all implementations, we give everyone 14 days Envision for free, also those who have already tried Envision before. After the free trial, you receive 35% off our annual subscription! Please try everything out on iOS or Android and get yourself the discount from December first onwards until the 31st

And now on to even bigger news in 2020, Envision has officially launched the Envision Glasses.

Envision Glasses are now worldwide available.

This is the headline of the press release Envision sent out this week. For those who haven't heard about the Envision Glasses yet, this is what our co-founder Karthik Kannan mentioned:

"We’re delighted to bring Envision Glasses to market and empower blind and visually impaired people worldwide with greater independence and a hands-free, easy way to ‘see’ the world around them through the spoken word.”
