Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Optelec is a company offering a wide variety of products and resources for individuals with visual impairments.  One of the company's newest additions is the Optelec ClearView GO Video Magnifier.
