Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Sep 23, 2022

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 looking for a new handheld video magnifier, check out the LookyPlus.  This video magnifier allows users to read text more easily and view photos more clearly on its 3.5-inch LCD screen.

The LookyPlus offers a magnification range of 2x up to 20x and five different color modes.  It features a convenient folding handle that allows the user to place it directly on the page or object.  When the handle is folded up, the device easily fits in your pocket or the handy carrying case.

Other features of the LookyPlus include:

  • 4 preset magnification levels
  • 5 viewing modes:
    • Full color
    • Black on white
    • White on black
    • Yellow on blue
    • Yellow on black
  • You can freeze the image on the LookyPlus display by pressing the power button once; the normal magnifier function is restored by pressing the power button again
  • Comes with 2 rechargeable AA batteries and a charger
  • Battery lasts about 2 hours on average
