Product Description: 

The Snow 12 is a portable video magnifier for people with vision impairments that features a 12-inch full-HD display and magnification up to 19x.

Main Features: 

  • Includes an analog stick to allow users to pan around a document without needing to move the reading material.
  • A foldable stand lifts the magnifier off the table for times when users prefer to place reading materials or objects like a medicine bottle or small item underneath.
  • The stand is designed to make it easier to see what the user is writing.
  • SnowLink, an optional external distance camera, enables users to look at something farther away.
  • When used outside of the foldable stand, it functions like most other handheld video magnifiers.
  • When folded shut, it is thinner than a notebook computer.
  • Includes a carrying case big enough to hold it and foldable stand together, and a sleeve case bag to hold just the video magnifier.
  • Comes with color rendition technology and contrast customization, which enables users to make fonts thinner or thicker on demand.
  • OCR technology enables it to recognize any of 20+ different languages and convert printed words into speech.
  • Changing the reading speed can be done on the fly.
  • Users can choose between male and female voices.
  • Documents can be saved for future reading and exported to a Windows PC.
  • Button or touch screen control with voice prompts.
  • When connected to a Windows PC, it appears as an external storage device.
  • Users can copy over books and other documents in JPG, PDF, RTF, and TXT formats to the device's memory storage.
  • Documents in JPG and PDF become available immediately for magnified reading.
