June 10th – Vispero

Vispero Representative James Bailey will be showing a new Smart Reader and the Clearview Go. Vispero encompasses several of the largest manufactures of equipment and software for people who are visually impaired including Enhanced Vision products, Freedom Scientific software among other name brands.

According to their website, the Smart Reader is a lightweight, portable reader/scanner with large built-in, user-friendly tactile control buttons that enables individuals with low vision to retain the pleasure of reading by listening along or by attaching a monitor to view the text.

The ClearView Speech, or Clearview Go, combines video magnification and accurate text-to-speech that makes it easy to select what you want to read. It allows you to enlarge materials to a more comfortable size or change the high contrast viewing modes with one master dial.

In addition to the demonstrations, we will be discussing JAWS and how it helps people with both low vision or no vision. For more information, call Bill Epperson at 404-602-4343.
