Rebecca was only a few months old when she was diagnosed with Oculocutaneous Albinisim. Going through school, she was offered many different assistive technologies that just didn’t quite fit her needs. For years she felt as though those around her were trying to solve circular problems with square shaped solutions. At 17, she walked into the offices of a Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired for what had been called a “technology meeting.” She was directed to a large room filled with devices aimed at assisting college-bound students with visual disabilities. Her options? An enormous, overhead-projector-like textbook enlarger with its own computer screen; effectively a huge digital camera/magnifier, and 3 feet tall, for nearly $5,000 - the alternative? An audio recorder. In that moment, she realized how far behind modern day these technologies really were, and how much room there was to improve them. Rebecca founded ReBokeh so that every person with a vision impairment can feel seen, knowing that there is technology available that is truly meant for them.
By engaging with those who our product will serve, we are able to create technologies without overcrowded features; technologies that do what our customers actually need them to.
Our dedicated engineers take the time to build upon our customer’s needs, creating solutions that enhance existing vision, instead of overpowering it.
Our technologies are built to empower individuals to take on challenges and experience independence that would be impossible with other devices.
