One of the key components to assistive technology is the ability to try a device before making the decision to purchase it. That is the idea behind IPAT’s demonstration centers. One of the areas that is difficult to have on hand because of price, variety, and space is video magnifiers. There is a new option for individuals to try out assistive technology in the Bismarck/Mandan area called Low Vision Products and Training of ND.
The resources offered by Low Vision Products and Training of ND cover a wide range of items from large print calendars and magnifiers to talking devices and high-end video magnifiers. Having been in the store I can attest to the variety of video magnifiers on-hand for individuals to explore. Although devices have similar features, how a feature is labeled and also placed can make a big difference for the end user, and that is why trying it out is so important.
