The PEARL brings blind and low vision users instant portable access to printed material with an array of human- sounding voices. The folding camera deploys in seconds to connect to your PC and snap a picture of your reading material.

Freedom Scientific's SARA CE (Scanning And Reading Appliance, Camera Edition) is the next-generation self-contained scanning and reading appliance for the blind and those with low vision.

For the many people who need help reading text and seeing details because of low vision, traditional magnifying glasses work only up to a point. The RUBY video magnifier takes handheld magnification to the next level and beyond. The RUBY's 4.3-inch full color, high brightness video screen makes it outstanding for reading bills and writing letters and checks. It is so small and unobtrusive that it easily slips into a pocket or purse as the perfect traveling companion for visiting the grocery store, the pharmacy, the bank, the library, bookstore, restaurant, or anywhere else. The RUBY is easy to use for those who are unfamiliar with technology products. Just turn it on with one button, place it over an object, and adjust enlargement to your preference with the easy zoom button. The unit stays flat on the table, and the magnified image appears in the display window. With only one button, you can adjust the screen from full color for viewing pictures to any of four high contrast text modes.
