Enjoy remaining independent

Text that used to be too small, can now be enlarged in the size that is ideal for you, in the colour settings you prefer. Designed to sit in the palm of your hand, you can even take it with you and read anything, anytime and anywhere.

More than an optical magnifier

The Compact+ HD offers so much more than optical magnifiers.

Thanks to the bright widescreen, you clearly read text, and view images and objects even in sunny conditions.

Or, place your hand on the open handle to easily maneuver the Compact+ HD over the document.
