New Technology Can Help People with Low Vision

Modern technology – some people love it, others hate it. But whichever side you fall on, you have to admit that some forms of technology have made the difference between letting people stay at home and remain independent, and moving into an assisted living facility. Take low vision products, for example. There are several inventive products on the market today that can make life a lot easier for people who are sight impaired. Here are some examples:

Talking Color Identifier

Colors can be very difficult for a person with low vision to pick out. The Colortest talking color identifier by Cartec is a small device that detects around 100 different colors. It speaks clearly at 3 volumes and even has an earphone jack.
