Synopsis and Key Points:
Enhanced Vision DaVinci Pro HD/OCR high definition electronic magnifier (CCTV) with full page text-to-speech HD 3-in-1 camera.
Enhanced Vision, America's leading manufacturer of magnifying solutions for the visually impaired launched a powerful new full high definition desktop electronic magnifier featuring full page text-to-speech. This allows a person with very limited vision to either magnify small printed text to a larger, contrasting readable format or have a full page of printed text read back to you in a clear audible voice with a simple push of a button. You can save multiple documents and let DaVinci Pro read them back to you at a later date.
A screen reader is defined as a software application that attempts to identify and interpret what is being displayed on a computer screen. This interpretation is then re-presented to the user with text-to-speech, sound icons, or a Braille output device.
Screen readers are a form of assistive technology (AT) potentially useful to people who are blind, visually impaired, illiterate or learning disabled, often in combination with other AT, such as screen magnifiers.
Computer screen readers read out loud the content that is on the computer screen. Screen readers enable access to a computer and all the things it does when magnification no longer helps or when you might experience visual fatigue if you have to read large amounts of on-screen text.
The key highlight of this device is that it offers two very important functions in one sleek package, a high performance 3-in-1 camera for magnification, and full page text-to-speech software. This eliminates the need for two separate low vision devices, reducing cost and desk space. Although reading is a prime function of DaVinci Pro, the high-performance camera also rotates to view images at a distance or point towards you for a mirror image.
Currently, more than 15 million people in the United States are diagnosed with low vision conditions, such as Macular Degeneration which makes everyday activities like reading, writing, and working on hobbies a real challenge. And with America's aging population, this number is expected to double by 2020. Leading eye care specialists have discovered that video magnification is a solution for these individuals to regain and maintain their independence.
"As leaders in the low vision industry, it is our responsibility to develop innovative technology that provides visual independence to the 15 Million + Americans struggling with low vision due to conditions such as macular degeneration. DaVinci Pro is a direct result of our dedication to this industry and we are extremely excited for its release", said Marc Stenzel, Vice President of Sales at Enhanced Vision.
