Show Summary:

In this Tech Abilities podcast we talk with Timothy from Eschenbach.

There are many opportunities in our everyday life when a vision aid can be beneficial and help improve one’s quality of life.

When you’re reading a newspaper or a bill or watching television or at an outdoor event, do you often find that the object being viewed is too small or difficult to see? If so, Eschenbach can help!

In this Tech Abilities podcast, I met up with Timothy from Eschenbach at the NCSAB conference in Washington D.C. If you are a teacher of the Blind/Visually Impaired or Counselor or Tech Specialist at an agency, then Eschenbach may have the Low Vision solution you have been looking for. Timothy talks us through two electronic magnifiers that are portable and loaded with features that can enhance the classroom experience for Low vision students.

The Vario digital Desktop Foldable

The Vario Digital FHDis a foldable desktop video magnifier with outstanding image quality and compact design. It features a 15.6” full HD monitor with optical zoom from 1.3x - 45x magnification and an FHD camera that provides a true color image with a large field of view.

The Visolux Digital XL FHDis an advanced portable video magnifier that features a 12” TFT LCD display with touch screen interface an FHD camera, built-in stand, and many other features!

The device’s unique Dynamic Line Scrolling (DLS) feature allows the user to scroll both horizontally and vertically when on the higher magnification levels without having to move the device. Its FHD camera actually sees more than what’s shown on the screen, making reading a book or magazine easier than ever. Images can be captured and stored on a removable 8GB SD card.
