by Mike Haaren    Jan. 10, 2024


Increased Hourly Rate, Employee Status – Assist Blind and Low-Vision People Remotely – $20/Hr. + Shift Differentials — Hiring from Most States – College Not Required – Paid Training Provided

Aira continues to recruit for part-time and full-time Visual Interpreters. This is an enhanced role — with increased compensation — over their earlier Agent position. Pay starts at $20/hr. plus shift differentials. There’s also a new $400 annual technology stipend.

The status of the job has also changed from contractor to employee.


Hiring nationwide except CA, DC, IL, MA, NJ, NY, OR, WA. Not hiring internationally.

This is one of our favorite jobs, for the unique service it provides for people who are blind or have low vision.

In a few words, Aira has developed technology that allows you to assist people who are blind or have low vision. Through this technology, they push a button and you see what’s in front of them.


As a Visual Interpreter, you then assist them with the issue they’ve encountered — shopping, reading email, navigating walking routes, or other challenges. (You are not on camera during these calls, the company notes.) Paid training provided.

Here’s what the company has to say about the job (excerpted):

As a Visual Interpreter, using our proprietary technology platform, you will answer live video calls from our blind and low vision customers. You will then assist, one at a time, with real-time tasks in countless unique scenarios. Please note you will not be on camera during these live video calls.

From assisting with daily personal routines to professional activities to navigating a dream journey around the globe, Visual Interpreters focus on providing live, personalized support for each customer’s unique requirements during live calls…

Working as a Visual Interpreter is unlike any other job. We’ve developed our own training and certification process to ensure you’ll be ready and able to assist our customers accomplish any task. While our paid training will expand your communication skills, teach you to use a mix of third-party tools and proprietary technologies, and polish your customer service skills, it’s the actual real-world calls that will challenge and shape your worldview.
