Smart Readers and Magnifiers for the Visually Impaired
Normal individuals’ achieving the unachievable is fine but the same being achieved by the visually challenged people is truly a matter that needs serious mention as well as commendation. It is truly a matter of immense pleasure to see numerous people coming forward to help for the cause of giving a better quality of life for the visually impaired. For instance, ABiSee is all set to break the boundaries with the help of “Talking CCTV” which can read out the fine print for the visually impaired or people with absolutely low vision.
This is the only product that is available for the VI in the market that can accomplish everything: magnifying, scanning, reading, and viewing. The company has been a pioneer in bringing out assistive technology devices that can simplify the otherwise complicated lives of the visually impaired. Their products Zoom Ex, Eye-Pal and Zoom-Twix are used with the computers. Where Eye Pal is portable and extremely fast in instantly scanning and converting the text into Braille, text files or speech, Zoom-Ex has been the world’s first instant book-to-speech tool.
With the help of such devices, people who are having poor vision due to some reason can get to know the contents instantly when the device reads the text out. ABiSee…the brain behind these devices also offers adequate customer support that can tackle any kind of difficulties and the professionals work with people having different visual disabilities. The company is working with a noble cause to serve the blind and the visually impaired people through manufacturing instant scanners/readers that help them hear the contents in the mails, magazines, books, medicines, and food packaging.
6Dot is another such device that aids the VI through creation of Braille labels just at the simple touch of one’s fingertips.
With the help of such devices, the VI need not hold them back from getting employed and hence they too can find great employment opportunities and gain the satisfaction of being independent in life.
