Assistive Technology: The DaVinci Magnifier

One of the many devices we offer for patrons with disabilities at Greenwich Library is the DaVinci Desktop Magnifier, which is located in the Periodicals area on the first floor. This device has a selective text-to-speech option that “reads” the text of any printed material underneath its autofocus 3-in-1 (self-viewing; reading or distance viewing) camera.  Instructions are available online, but if you’d like to see the DaVinci in action before trying out our model, here’s a  short (7:21) instructional video:

Stop by the Periodicals Desk or contact Ed Morrissey (me) at  if you’d like to learn more about the DaVinci.
