What is Aira?
Aira is a Visual Interpreting Accommodation Service, an application that connects someone who is blind or has low vision, via a video call, with a live, professionally-trained visual interpreter for on-demand assistance.

Using Aira is simple!
Download the free Aira Explorer app to your smartphone, create an account, and you're just one tap away from connecting with a professionally-trained visual interpreter for on-demand assistance, 24/7. Designed and tested to be highly accessible and usable, simply tap a large button on the home screen and your phone's back-facing camera streams a live video to an Aira Agent.

Who uses Aira and why?
Anywhere someone needs access to visual information, and needs to maneuver through physical or digital accessibility barriers, is where Aira fits, from describing to reading, from explaining to navigating – just about anything, safely and securely. Aira enhances independence, efficiency, and autonomy.

How does Aira work?
The Aira Explorer app connects you to a remote Agent who will converse, describe and assist based on your needs. The app streams live video, including your GPS location, and through an integrated dashboard, an Aira Agent can immerse themselves in your surroundings, seeing and hearing your environment. Agents have access to web-based data, including maps, location tracking, search engines, text-based messaging, and even rideshare integration – all carefully calibrated to provide people who are blind or have low vision with a seamless experience.

What is Aira Access?
Many of the world's most influential organizations provide access to visual information by being part of the Aira Access Network. People who are blind or have low vision can use Aira's service for free at these Aira Access Partner sites. From airports to banks, grocery stores to retailers, universities to entire states, customers, employees, and residents of hundreds of organizations benefit from this commitment to accessibility and inclusion. With our growing Aira Access Network, there are more options to use Aira for free daily; find the full list of free Aira Access Partners in the app.

Love the new app design

This is a must-have app for anyone who is blind or has trouble with visual tasks. I love the new design and new features like being able to screen share right from the app and being able to send files and photos to an agent, no more trying to spell email addresses.

Visual, interpreting at its best

I have been using this outstanding service and app for over six years now. I don’t travel anywhere without it! I enjoyed using it so much I ended up going to work for the company! If you haven’t tried this, please do and spread the word to other Blind in Low vision individuals!
