Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Mar 26, 2021

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!

If you or a loved one are in the market for a new desktop video magnifier, the Low Vision Store offers many different solutions!  One example of their available video magnifiers is the Mezzo Focus 16.

According to the Low Vision Store's description, the device features FullHD cameras to enlarge your reading materials with the "best" picture quality, minimum picture noise, and reduced reflection of glossy surfaces.  It will also reduce shadows whenever you're handwriting!

The Mezzo Focus 16's smaller size and sleek footprint make it a great unite for individuals wanting a full-size desktop at a competitive price.  Because it only weighs 11.5 pounds, users can transfer from room to room.

Other features include:

Focus 16 model's flatscreen measures 16 inches
Magnification ranges from 1.6X to 32X
Simple 3-button operation offers focus magnification, six color selections including full color, and brightness controls with additional windowing and line marking
Available with or without optional replaceable battery
Check out to learn more!
