Since the publication of this month's Keep Posted newsletter and it's story on our ADA services to patrons with disabilities, I've been getting a lot of questions. Specifically, patrons have been asking me where they can get some of the assistive technology equipment and software for their own home use.
The vendor I've dealt with is Freedom Scientific (click here to go on their site), which offers the JAWS and MAGic software, as well as the Ruby handheld video magnifier (pictured above). (The Optelec Traveller magnifier, which we got from FS some years back, is no longer in stock, however.) VideoEye (click here), which provided the VideoEye Millennium Magnifier located on the first floor of the library in Periodicals, also offers assistive tech equipment.
You can go on these sites to find out what other products are being offered. Note that VideoEye's site only lists a phone number if you have any questions about prices.
Questions? Email me or call me at (203) 622-7918. And keep checking our ADA page for updates.
