Latest news - details of our August meeting
Our August speaker was Jason Shaw from VisionAid. His company is based in Spalding and provides solutions to assist
partially sighted and blind people. He explained the specialist technology of his products and he can freely advise people
individually in their own homes.
The aids that he demonstrated to us ranged from handheld magnifiers to a portable reading machine which could read a
whole book aloud. His battery magnifiers could be adjusted for size of print, brightness and colour. The more
sophisticated models could store an image, pan and zoom. He offers hundreds of items in his brochure which are sourced
from all over world. One of the most popular ones is made in UK!
This sort of aid dosen’t seem to be available from opticians and yet it appeared to help anyone with any sight impairment
from macular degeneration to blindness. Jason can also advise on lighting for those with low vision.
We all felt that we knew someone who could benefit from this quite amazing technology.
