Ok, this has to be one of the COOLEST work from home jobs I’ve come across in… ever!
Aira has developed glasses that have a webcam and audio built into them. People who are blind or visually impaired wear the glasses and, when they need help, they push a button and YOU SEE what’s in front of them.
Now you, as an Aira Agent can help them with shopping, reading email or computer screens, identifying obstacles on walking routes and helping them change their course to get around them, and so much more.
Here’s what they have to say:
Agents play a key role in Aira’s mission to assist the visually impaired gain greater independence. Our agents have a keen desire to help others, in addition to possessing other important attributes, including patience and good character.
