Aira Is Available for Free on Campus

Friday, Mar 12, 2021

Aira, an augmented reality technology for people who are blind or have low vision, or who have print disabilities, is available on the central campus and remotely. Users download an app to their mobile phone, and use it to contact a live agent who describes the visual field for them. The Aira agent serves as a personal guide who is available on demand.

Anyone may use the service free of charge while on campus.

If you are a student, faculty, or member of the staff who is learning, teaching, or working remotely, you may also use the service free of charge. To do so, you must first sign up with Princeton's account. Please email your request to the digital accessibility service and include your name, userid, and cell phone number.

The service is also available for free to attendees of online conferences hosted by Princeton. If you are hosting a conference and want to make it available, you must set up the service in advance. Please email your request to the digital accessibility service and include your contact information, conference title and dates.
