    Freedom Scientific's SARA Scanning and Reading Appliance is an affordable and easy-to-use solution for reading a wide variety of printed material, including books, mail, newspapers, magazines, and so much more. For the low vision user, SARA can be attached to a computer monitor, providing colorful, large print access to supplement the speech.

    Freedom Scientific is the world leader in assistive technology for those with vision loss or learning disabilities. Our low vision products include video magnifiers, screen magnification software, and products for scanning and reading.

    For the many people who need help reading text and seeing details because of low vision, traditional magnifying glasses work only up to a point. The RUBY video magnifier takes handheld magnification to the next level and beyond. The RUBY's 4.3-inch full color, high brightness video screen makes it outstanding for reading bills and writing letters and checks. It is so small and unobtrusive that it easily slips into a pocket or purse as the perfect traveling companion for visiting the grocery store, the pharmacy, the bank, the library, bookstore, restaurant, or anywhere else. The RUBY is easy to use for those who are unfamiliar with technology products. Just turn it on with one button, place it over an object, and adjust enlargement to your preference with the easy zoom button. The unit stays flat on the table, and the magnified image appears in the display window. With only one button, you can adjust the screen from full color for viewing pictures to any of four high contrast text modes.

    Powerful Vision Management

    Turn your PC into a vision and image management tool that enables you to work with magnified camera images and a magnified PC view at the same time. The ONYX® Flexible-arm PC Edition produces exactingly clear magnified images in three distinct modes: distance, document, and self-view.

    The powerful ONYX camera is uniquely mounted on an omni-directional articulating arm that can move horizontally, vertically, and laterally, with a total reach of up to 32 inches. This enables users to adjust the camera in a wide array of positions to accommodate any need or viewing situation. The camera produces magnification up to 75x on a 15-inch PC screen.

    The Flexible-arm PC Edition captures multiple snapshot views — whether near-at-hand or from across a large auditorium. You can work with these images on your PC in full screen or split window view without the need for constant camera adjustments.
