Prodigi digital personal vision assistant available for low vision patients

Article

Users can choose from a portable tablet magnifier, a desktop-only model, or a combination of desktop model with detachable tablet.

Champlain, NY-HumanWare announces the immediate availability of Prodigi, the all-digital personal vision assistant for people with low vision. HumanWare has designed Prodigi to be a more affordable and intuitive visual aid than the traditional CCTV-based electronic magnifier.

Prodigi allows low vision users to benefit from a big-screen desktop device and a go-anywhere tablet magnifier at a lower cost than similar systems. The portable tablet fits into a patented docking station in the base and becomes both the camera and processor of the desktop system. Unlike other magnifiers, Prodigi captures the image of an entire letter- or A4-sized page and allows the user to magnify and read documents with a touchpad instead of moving an X/Y table. Pages are displayed in HumanWare's Diamond Edge Text format, which can be magnified up to 80 times with high text quality. Text can be presented to the user in smooth-scrolling column or line modes and can even read aloud, reducing fatigue caused by moving documents under a CCTV camera. Prodigi stores documents so the user can take them to read or reference later while away from his or her desk.

Prodigi is available in three models: the Duo, a desktop unit with the detachable tablet; the portable tablet magnifier by itself, and a desktop-only model.
