Shelly had a chance to reconnect with Charles Palmer of Patriot Vision to learn about their new iPad based Patriot Pro 12.9. The unit, with its stand and laptop case, is 8 pounds and it also sports an iOS app that has been two years in the making for providing Video Magnification. The software is Voiceover aware and will change the product s user interface if it detects that it is active. Therefore, icons for features like zoom and OCR options will appear if Voiceover is in use. If not, the device will rely on a user to perform hand based gestures for navigation of text and magnification. To learn more about this new Video magnifier, or review other products like the wearable Viewpoint headset, visit the Patriot Vision website
