New assistive products from Sight and Sound include a portable magnifier, a digital camera that reads aloud, and a sophisticated, swing-arm computer camera.
Onyx lets students "work with a magnified PC screen and view magnified camera images at the same time". The heart of the system is a small but powerful camera that delivers up to 75 times magnification, and moves quickly and easily between three views "distance, document and mirror-image self". Supplied with magnification software and speech options, Onyx connects directly to the USB port, and continues to assist long after a lesson has ended. "Unique software features let you capture multiple snapshot views of a presentation, before they are erased or removed, so you can save them as your notes.'
