Low Vision Aids
Low vision aids are tools designed to help people to perform everyday tasks. They can be optical or non-optical.
Magnifying glasses help people read from textbooks, worksheets, and handouts more clearly. There are several different types of magnifying glasses available, including handheld magnifiers and stand magnifiers.
Handheld electronic magnifiers are small portable devices that use a camera to magnify text or images. They can be used for reading and writing tasks and are particularly useful to magnify small print or detailed images.
Desktop electronic magnifiers have a larger screen and more advanced features than handheld magnifiers, and are more suitable for longer reading or writing tasks.
Audio books and talking devices can be a great option for those who have difficulty reading printed materials.
Braille devices can be used by those who have significant low vision
Adaptive computer software can help children with low vision access digital content. This software can magnify text, change the contrast, and adjust the colour settings of a computer screen.
