Living with low vision doesn't just mean your world looks blurry. Instead, individuals diagnosed with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts or another condition may find that colors change, depth perception gets altered and the boundaries between objects aren't always defined.

In turn, low-vision aids go beyond magnification, adding text-to-speech, recording and playback capabilities to provide more comprehensive assistance.

Features of Low-Vision Aids With Text-to-Speech and More Capabilities

Digital technologies expand what's possible. For use with a desktop computer or in a more portable form, these devices:

  • Incorporate a camera for a clear and adjustable view of text, images and video.
  • May include a larger screen allowing you to read more text present on a page.
  • Are equipped with text-to-speech features to read anything from a label to an article back to you - including in full or selected segments.
  • May include a choice of voice options, each providing a degree of clarity to understand what's being said and options to increase or slow down the pace.
  • Can be used at home or on the go, based on size.
  • May connect to an existing electronic device or a computer for a combination of improved magnification and text-to-speech reading.
  • Can be used on various print materials, including books, magazines and letters.
  • Take advantage of the benefits of text-to-speech technology, which can improve your focus and comprehension, no matter if you need to read or write.
