The users are guided with artificial speech feedback that comes out from the speaker integrated into the glasses. After the use selects the mode, they have to double tap the right arm for recording the image. This image is processed by the artificial intelligence based algorithms system. Based on the selected mode, these glasses read and speak short text pieces instantly, such as street signs, it can scan longer text pieces like book pages and then speak them according to convenience of the user. The glasses can read text in around 60 languages.

Moreover, these glasses can also be used to create an assistive video call, where the person on the other side can verbally direct the user as they view a real time feed through their glasses. The Envision Glasses are IP43 water-resistant, weigh nearly 46 g, and can run for four to five hours on its lithium battery after each charge. Currently, the Envision Glasses are priced at US$3, 607.
