The Dodgeville Lions Club donated a VideoEye to the Library for vision impaired patrons. Located in the Local History room, the VideoEye is available for reading print materials, writing or doing handwork.
The VideoEye has several features that allow patrons to control the visual image.
- Reverse Image converts black on white text into white on black text to give increased contrast. This is especially helpful when reading.
- Color/BW turns color off. Helpful when reading colorful print.
- Focus Lock fixes the focus on the desired surface to help with writing.
- Full Range Autofocus focuses at any camera height by moving the camera arm up and down.
- PowerZoom fingertip control increases/decreases magnification continuously by pressing and holding the button.
How does it work?
The arm unit is clamped to the reading table. Nearby, the television screen is connected to the arm. When both are turned on, the VideoEye magnifies and projects the image from the table top through the television screen. The VideoEye can also be moved over the patron's lap for handwork such as knitting.
