Vision Disabilities



To address the needs of low vision users a closed circuit television (CCTV) will be featured, coupled with a computer that has screen magnification/screen reading software. This will enable any user to enlarge printed materials, handwritten notes, diagrams and wired circuitry anywhere from 4-60 times, or have the materials read with a voice synthesizer.

Also at this workstation is an alternative keyboard with large print keyboard caps and a built-in trackball. Between the CCTV and the computer monitor is a telephone (not in use) with large, easy to read buttons.

This workstation will also house an 80 character refreshable Braille terminal, scanner/reader software, and a Braille embosser.
