Pretty much new but the last two have been out of the box briefly.
This document viewer 2.0 uses your tablet or smartphone as a smart reading aid! This stand allows a user to position the tablet or smartphone over printed material at a suitable height and angle and keep their hands free while reading magnified print. The tablet's rear-facing camera is used as the magnifier and a linear slide is used for smooth positioning of the tablet.The product is offered as a full set, including a reading plate and magnetic LED-light. Suitably positioned in local libraries, schools or in the home. This can be utilised by anyone with a visual impairment to help gain access to printed materials independently.
Tablet not included.
Many care homes/special schools/individuals/hospitals/libraries now have easy access to tablet devices.
This technology is also not typically synonymous with disabilities reducing the stigma a disability can have on someone, particularly with younger generations.
Improved, more ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½naturalÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ reading angle than that provided by traditional CCTV devices..
Whilst the tablet holder itself is likely to only be used for reading, the technology available in tablets means that they could also be used for OCR, work and recreational purposes.
At 54cm, 15cm high, 3.5kg and made with a highly rugged steel frame it can also be taken between school/home/library with relative ease.
Able to be used with any phone/phablet/tablet that has a camera function (2 megapixel camera recommended).
Last year my children bought me an iPad for Christmas, mostly for Skype and to help me stay connected, they said it would do me some good but I never used it as much as I told them. Now, my eyesight has never been the best but in recent years IÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ve found it particularly difficult to go about my day-to-day routin, especially when trying to write to my grandchildren or paying in cheques. I had often tried to read sections of the paper with a hand held magnifier but found it too shaky to read for any period of time. Writing was also a chore, even with the magnifier on a stand. My son suggested I try using the iPad as a magnifier and found out about the USee Amazon. When I first heard about the USee tablet magnifier I wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t so sure but once sat down at my desk and started reading I realised the benefits it could bring. However, I can now comfortably place the iPad on the holder on the USee, pay my bills via cheque, read the letters from my Grandchildren and even do the crossword.
Working in a primary school for children with varying levels of disabilities, it can be difficult to make sure that all students are able to participate in the same activities as fellow students. Some students in our class have varying levels of visual impairment but are otherwise fine developmentally. They have difficulty during reading time and either require someone to assist them or have to use one of the large electronic magnifiers. The kids get on well with others in the class but still feel the stigma whenever they have to go to the electronic magnifiers to read as it singles them out.
We are fortunate enough to have had access to tablets for some time. A few iPads and Samsung ones for various educational activities throughout the school.
We were contacted about using the USee tablet magnifier a local assistive technology consultant and we decided to pick up 3 for our classroom before getting more for the rest of the school. Now the children look forward to reading time as they get to use the tablets, the students that have difficulty with their vision just get the USee tablet holders out of the cupboard and put them on their desks, we place the tablets on them and away they go.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ve had a tablet device in one form or another for sometime now, either for business or personal use at home or on the go. In recent years however I had noticed that reading the fine print on documents was getting harder and my reading glasses just werenÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t cutting it. I needed additional magnification but didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t feel like I had a disability so always avoided getting an optical or electronic magnifier. A colleague who noticed my passion with tablet devices who I had mentioned my struggle with reading recommended I check out the USee tablet holder. The USee tablet magnifier looks great in my office at home and IÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½m even thinking about getting one for the workplace. My wife doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t even realise that itÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s to help me read and the viewing angle means I can sit there for many hours. ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s so comfortable that I often end up doing the crossword and reading the paper at my desk. Using a tablet to read means I am also able to benefit from a ton of great apps that are dedicated to making reading easier.
These are case examples and are not meant to represent actual events. Here are some examples of how the USee Tablet Magnifier can easily be used to enhance everyday situation.
