For many with low vision daily tasks can be difficult, especially if that task involves reading print. As technology evolves, access to handheld video magnifiers has become easier. Many of the most common units are about the size of a tablet computer, very portable! One of my favorite options for a video Magnifier is called the Snow 7 HD Plus by Zoomax!  This unit is easy to use and customizable to the user’s needs. Things like reading the newspaper, following recipes, reviewing catalogs and so much more is achievable with this lightweight and small unit. The buttons on this video magnifier are white against a black background, providing contrast, and making it easy to identify the buttons functions.

I think the Snow 7 HD Plus is a wonderful solution for those needing vision assistance!
