We just received some very interesting technology in the form of the ODIN VI phone. This phone is made specifically for the blind and visually impaired and features a number of accessibility features such as:


The ODIN VI is 100% accessible to the blind
Adjust the speech speed
Select a male or female voice
Typed numbers displayed in 24 point font
Text messages displayed in 12 point font
Select black on white display or white on black
Hearing aid compatible – rating of M3/T3


This is a great phone. particularly for seniors who find smart phones too complex. It is straight forward to use, tactile, fully voiced (including reading text messages) and has a number of low cost plans (starting from $10!) to suit any budget.


As you can tell we are impressed and will have a video up soon. In the meantime check out this video from our friends at Baruch College.

The Snow 7 HD electronic handheld magnifier is here

We recently received a new handheld electronic magnifier from Zoomax called the Snow 7 HD. As you might have guessed from the name it features a 7" screen and a HD camera. Also included is the ability to focus on near and distance objects, and the ability to connect to a high-definition screen.


This electronic magnifier is great value for money at $999.95, and can be used as a handheld and also as a good alternative to a desktop CCTV. See our video below!
