Computer Stations Available for the Visually Impaired
The Durham Public Library has equipped two of its public computers with software and hardware components to assist the visually impaired. Thanks to a generous grant from the Rotary Club of Durham-Great Bay and Rotary International, the library was able to purchase ZoomText, a computer program that magnifies images on a monitor. The program is easy to use, and allows patrons to increase screen magnification to whatever suits them best.
ZoomText includes an audio component as well. Patrons can hear text on a webpage being read aloud to them through Audio-Technica headphones, also purchased with grant funds.
ZoomText also allows the visually impaired to magnify the pages of books and magazines. The process is simple: patrons place a book under a small camera and the page appears on the computer monitor at whatever magnification is selected.
The program is easy to use and takes minutes to learn. Our librarians are happy to show you how.
Special thanks to the members of the Rotary Club of Durham Ė Great Bay.
