New Device For Visually Impaired Patrons

| No Comments

Greenwich Library is pleased to announce that it has acquired The Ruby, a handheld video magnifier that enhances small print.

With The Ruby, the text is displayed on a brightly lit 4.3 inch screen and can be magnified without any distortion of traditional magnifying glasses. Some visually impaired patrons will benefit from The Ruby's contrast mode which reverses the color of the background and the text.
